Ashley C of E Primary School

School Dinner Service


We continue to work with Twelve15 (formally Surrey Commercial Services) to ensure that the food is as appetising, nutritional and sustainable as possible.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our food provision is different from normal. The menu (September 2020 to March 2021) is available here.

In normal circumstances we aim for the following:

We use produce that is seasonal and local, including the a wide variety of fruit and vegetables grown by the children in the school grounds. In addition, we are consciously reducing our use of red meat, to reduce our carbon footprint and have introduced meat free days to show to the children that  food doesn’t have to include meat to be nutritious and delicious.

Our menu broadly follows the Gold Food for Life Menu and if your child has any particular dietary requirements, do let the school office know and we can ensure that there is a suitable alternative. If you have a ‘fussy’ eater school can offer a great opportunity to help your child, do come and talk to us about how we can tackle this together.

We would like as many children as possible to take part in school meals and to this end, we work hard to make the lunch time experience a really positive one.

The children are encouraged to drink all their water to ensure that they are hydrated and that this precious resource is not wasted.

From time to time we invite parents in to join their children for lunch, do watch out for communication about this from the school office. (Not during the pandemic)

The cost of a meal is £2.45 per day. Please ensure these are made prior to the term or half term start if paying in two installments.

For school trips that are not residential, packed lunches will be provided. A choice of filling will be offered in the trip letter.
