School Meals

Catering at Pucklechurch Primary is provided by ABM Catering Ltd. Helen Whale, the Kitchen Manager, along with her team of kitchen assistants, offer hot meals which are cooked on the premises in our 5 star food hygiene rated kitchen.

A hot school meal with a pudding is provided daily. Salad is available for children to try with all meals and there is always a vegetarian option on the menu. Drinks are provided by the kitchen for those children having hot meals.

We consider lunchtime to be an enormously important part of the day for most children and therefore encourage them to take responsibility for how they approach their meal. We provide proper plates and dishes for their meals, encourage the children to choose where they sit and to have positive conversations whilst they eat.

For any children who have a special diet/allergies ABM kindly request a special diet form is completed by clicking on the following link Special Diet Request Form

Packed lunches

You may prefer your child to bring in a packed lunch. This must be in a suitable, clearly named container. If a child forgets or loses their packed lunch, a hot lunch will be provided and the relevant amount charged to the parents. We try to ensure that children return all uneaten food, wrappers, etc to their lunch box to be brought home so that you can see what they are eating

Drinks may be brought in as part of the packed lunch. They must:-
  • Not be in glass containers or be cans of fizzy drink.
  • The carton or flask must be contained within the sandwich box.
  • Storage facilities for packed lunches are limited.
  • The container should have a strong top to prevent leakage but the child should be able to open it themselves.

Please do not send in soup as part of a packed lunch. As a hot drink can be dangerous for both your child and other children at the table.
