School Lunches

September 2021


School lunches

Roxbourne Primary School serves hot nutritious meals for our children every day. These are prepared onsite by Chartwells. Our menu offers a selection of meat, vegetarian and sandwich options to meet all preferences.




Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

All pupils in in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a free school lunch under the government's Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme. We will expect all pupils (in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) to enjoy a school meal as one class / year group community with their friends and peers. Therefore, the school will no longer offer pupils the option to bring a packed lunch to school. We understand that this might be a significant change for a small number of families, please get in touch with the School Office if you'd like to discuss any individual cases and we'd be happy to make a plan. 


Additional funding for your child

We are able to claim £1,345 for your child per academic year (if they are eligible for Pupil Premium Funding). We currently claim this additional funding for 102 children at Roxbourne Primary School and this means we are able to support their parents with:

  • An annual £65 gift voucher to be used with Touchline (our uniform provider)

  • 50% off all educational visit (including residentials), workshops, clubs programme, breakfast and after school care

  • 50% off music tuition


The list above is just some of the fantastic benefits we are able to pass on if your child qualifies for Pupil Premium funding. Help us to help you! To find out if you are entitled to this additional funding, please complete a 2 min Roxbourne Google Form by clicking this LINK


Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6

Pupils in these year groups have flexibility to enjoy a school meal or bring a packed lunch.


Packed lunches

Please send drinks in plastic bottles, plastic flasks or cartons and ensure that lunch boxes are clearly named.


We ask that packed lunches are healthy and balanced to conform to the school’s commitment to providing healthy meals. Some fun and nutritious ideas can be found at
