Catering at The Stonehenge School & Lunchtime Menus
Catering at The Stonehenge School
Here at The Stonehenge School we want to ensure that all students have access to a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet at an affordable price.
From September 2023, we will offer 5 catering outlets offering various options at mid-morning break and lunchtimes.
We will also operate a breakfast service for those wanting to eat before the school day begins.
Food will be served at the following times:
Breakfast: 8.00am -8.25am
Mid-Morning Break: 10.50 am -11.15 am
Lunch: 1.15pm – 1.50pm
The school offers a 2 week cycle and the menus can be found by clicking on the links below.
Free School Meals
Taking up free school meals has benefits for everyone:
- children get a healthy nutritious meal
- schools can benefit directly by receiving additional funding for each secondary child
If don’t want your child to have the school meals they can continue to have packed lunches – as long as you qualify and are registered, the school still receives the additional funding.
Students entitled to free school meals are entitled to food up to the value of £2.50. If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please click here to complete an online application form.
The school operates a cashless catering system so no cash will be accepted at the till. Students will have their own account set up which can be topped through either ParentPay
ParentPay is the preferred option as it will negate the need for students to queue or bring cash to school. Please follow this link for further details.
Please note that you are able to check what your child is buying by logging into your ParentPay account.
The Government has introduced new legislation, referred to as ‘Natasha’s Law’ which requires all pre-packed for direct sale food, to have ingredient and allergen information provided on the label from 1st October 2021.
This law requires us to provide a full list of ingredients, in weight order, with the 14 declarable allergens emphasised on the product label. These products will include pre-packed food such as sandwiches, dessert pots.
Our team have been working hard over the last year to ensure we are ready for the changes in October.
All our food is prepared in a kitchen where gluten and other allergens are present and our menu descriptions do not included all ingredients.
If your child has a food allergy, you must notify the school via Insight. Click on the box “I wish to notify school about a new food allergy”. We will then contact you to discuss the allergy.
