School Life  »  School Lunch

Please note: all pupils are expected to have school lunch

Avanti schools DO NOT allow packed lunches. A core part of our ethos is around the provision of nutritious vegetarian meals. Sharing tasty, healthy school lunches is an integral part of the educational experience at an Avanti school. It’s also an opportunity to enhance social skills and table etiquette, ensuring lunchtimes are a positive experience for all. School staff often enjoy taking lunch with pupils, creating a family atmosphere.

Meals are also designed to meet the needs of children with specific allergies. Packed lunches are only allowed if there is a specific medical requirement, supported by a letter from an appropriate medical doctor stating that the child cannot have school lunches.

We strongly encourage parents who have financial constraints to apply for Free School Meals. An application form can be obtained from the school office. Any forms received by the school will be kept confidential.

Cost and Payment for School Lunches

The cost of the school lunches is kept to a minimum in relation to the quality of food. The cost for primary pupils is £2.00 a meal. The cost for secondary pupils is £2.35 a meal.

We only accept electronic payments for school meals. This easy and simple process is facilitated by ParentPay. ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, safe in the knowledge that the technology used provides the highest internet security available. You will have a secure online account, with a unique user ID and password. You can change these to something you will easily remember and merge accounts of two or more children. Parents who are unable to make payments online can request a Paypoint Card. This will enable parents to pay at any store which displays the Paypoint sign.

Payments for school lunches must be made by the first day of the start of the term or in advance in half-term, full-term, or yearly instalments.
