Kings Avenue is fortunate to have Nourish Catering who prepares our meals freshly each day; we offer three choices of main course (one vegetarian) and an exciting variety of vegetables and salads. We encourage children to have a hot school lunch. The food is prepared on site daily with at least 90% fresh ingredients.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
All primary school children who attend state schools in London will receive free school meals for the full academic year, starting September 2023. This means that your child and all children in our school will be entitled to free school meals this year. This is different from the national Free School Meals (FSM) entitlement, which is an income- related entitlement. Only those who are not entitled to the national FSM scheme will be funded by the Mayor of London.
If your child is in the Nursery and you wish for them to have school meals, please pay for this via Parent Pay. Meals cost £2.50 each.
If you think your child is eligible for Free School Meals, the application process is quick and simple, please download and complete the free school meal application form and bring it to the school office with proof of your entitlement. We will be able to check whether you are entitled.
CHANGES FROM SCHOOL DINNER TO PACKED LUNCH
Every half term, on the first day, families are asked to choose school meals in advance for the half term. Changes from one to the other create ordering problems for the kitchen, so children have been advised that changes can only be made half-termly.
If, however for some unforeseeable circumstance, your child has to change his or her dinner arrangements, this must be done by calling the school office, otherwise payment must be made for the dinners, as the school will be ordering the meals and therefore be charged for them.
KINGS AVENUE MENU
To see a copy of the school menu please see below. Please note that the menu runs on a three week cycle.
If your child has a special diet, allergy or diet restriction we do our best to cater for their needs; please make sure you inform the school office so that our caterers can work with you to develop a menu plan for your child. Where needed the children wear a small lanyard to ensure that they are served the correct meal and all staff know their dietary needs. The catering staff are friendly and get to know the children’s names and dietary needs quickly so the service has a family feel to it.
