The Kimberley School Meals
We are proud of the fact that we offer a variety of healthy school meal options for all our students including paninis, wraps, sandwiches, salads as well as delicious main meals. We promote healthy eating at The Kimberley School and all our meals are well-balanced, nutritious and adhere to Government legislation. Students and staff enjoy the range of options which we have available during breakfast, break and lunchtime and there are a range of meal deals available too which offer good value for money. All nutritional and allergen information can be found in our canteen via our menu displays or at each service point. Whilst a variety of bottled drinks are on sale, we are mindful of the environment and so have water fountains are available throughout the school to enable students to top up their own bottle and stay hydrated throughout the day. We have recently worked with our Head boy and Head girl to look at introducing more environmentally friendly food packaging and there will also be increased recycling points throughout the site to ensure that we recycle as much of our kitchen waste as possible.
We cater for a range of dietary needs through our menu however, if your child has any medical dietary requirements, please contact our school Catering Manager, Mr. Donlan, to discuss your specific requirements. Mr. Donlan can be contacted via email; firstname.lastname@example.org
Free School Meals:
If your child is eligible for free school meals, they can use it for food at morning break time and lunch time, between the hours of 11am and 1.30pm, up to the value of £2.50 (which covers many of our meal deals). Should they wish to spend more than the £2.50 allowance, please ensure that there is sufficient credit on their ParentPay balance to pay for the additional food.
Please be aware that the free school meal allowance is not available for use at breakfast time or the after-school tuck shop.
