Our school lunches are designed to offer your children something tasty and exciting as
well as being healthy, fresh, nutritious and meeting the governments statutory
requirements. We believe investing in good quality food and a balanced diet is an
investment in our children’s futures.

Children’s favourite foods such as burgers and sausages are still offered within our menus
sourcing only high quality ingredients from local, reputable suppliers/butchers. We also
include classic favourites such as roast lunches, homemade pies and dishes offering flavours from around the world to try to tempt every palette. Often parents are surprised what their children will eat at school and children eating with their peers are often more willing to try different foods. We encourage children to try/taste new foods often with positive results.   All Infant School children are entitled to a free school meal.

We have a 3 week rolling menu cycle which we change twice yearly and incorporate
children’s feedback to ensure we include their favourites.  All food, wherever possible, is cooked from fresh on the premises.

Our catering and midday staff aim to give your child the best dining experience they
can helping and supporting children as necessary to select their food and use cutlery.

Should you be concerned or have any questions regarding allergens, please contact
our Catering Manager, Lesley Bond on the following email admin@galleywood.essex.sch.uk, who will be happy to meet with you personally to talk through any products.

We would, of course, like every child to enjoy a hot school meal, but we appreciate that some children prefer a packed lunch from home. Your child can of course mix and match their meals according to menu choices. All the children may sit with their friends whether they have a packed lunch or a school dinner.

We do allow fizzy drinks, peanut butter, sweets, nuts or chocolate bars in lunchboxes.  We are a NUT FREE school, please do not include nuts or nut products in your child's lunchbox.
