Lime Tree provides hot meals which are cooked onsite every day and follow the government guidelines.
The school uses a company called Harrison. Lunches need to be ordered and paid for in advance via the school's communication system ParentPay. The cost of a school lunch is £2.34.
All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals but parents will still need to order them in advance if they wish their child to have a lunch.
You will need to choose and book the exact meal your child is going to have on a specific day. The menu is rotated on a three week rolling basis and parents need to select from each course. To access ParentPay and order school meals you will need to sign up and activate your account. Activation letters are sent to all parents but should you have any further queries please contact the school office on 0208 390 9544. If you have not yet registered you will need to provide a packed lunch for your child. Due to strict regulations with COVID-19 we are not able to provide meals to children on an adhoc basis.
