School Meals


School Lunches

We are a NUT FREE school

School lunch is provided by outside caterers based at Earl Mortimer, however, if you wish for your child to bring a packed lunch from home they will still be able to eat with their peers.

If you would like to order hot meals then you need to do so via Sodexo Parent Portal ( and register as a new user, all orders must be placed by midday the previous day.

Healthy lunchboxes are encouraged.

Lunchtime is organised in two sittings to reduce waiting time and possible sensory overload; our youngest pupils eat in their classroom environment.

As part of the food technology and independent living skills curriculum, older pupils may sometimes cook their own lunch or purchase meals from other establishments. Details of this will be provided by the class teacher when the scheme is in operation.

Applications for free school meals, based on household income, are handled by the Local Authority: application forms are now electronic:

Free School Meals Application

If you would prefer a paper application, please contact the school office. Even if your child prefers to eat a packed lunch, it is advisable to apply for this entitlement for statistical purposes and additional school funding.
