School Meals

Lunch Menu 2016 – 17


The Menu operates on a rolling programme and meals are cooked on site daily.

The Mendip School is a part of the Food For Life initiative and has a commitment to providing healthy options and a well balanced diet in its school dinners.

Lunch is served in the school dining halls. Dinner money is collected on the first day of each week for the whole week. The cost of a school meal is £2.00 for junior pupils and £2.50 for senior pupils per day.

Arrangements can be made for pupils requiring a special diet for health for religious reasons and a vegetarian meal is always available.  Pupils not wanting a hot meal can be provided with a freshly prepared sandwich.  Pupils can also opt to bring in their own packed lunch.

Please ensure that any drinks are stored in unbreakable containers, no glass bottles or cans please.

All pupils should remain on the premises during lunch times.

The school is also a participant in the Schools Fruit and Vegetable Scheme.

Our eligible pupils receive free fruit and vegetables which they can have every day at school with the hope that they will try and experience new healthy foods and establish a habit of eating them in the future.

The school has also opted in to the Free School Milk that the LEA can provide for those aged between 5-7 and the group that is eligible receives a carton of milk each day at school. Other parents can arrange for milk to be bought in.
