School Lunches

Changes for Autumn 2019

Lunches at Lydbrook Primary School are provided by a company are called Caterlink who have an excellent reputation for providing high quality school lunches.    The new Caterlink Autumn has been finalised.  This term's menu looks interesting but as always we would welcome any feedback - good or bad.   As from the beginning of next term, parents will need to order their child's meals online using the ParentPay portal.  Please see the letter below and guidelines from Parent Pay that explain how the new system will work.  If you have any queries or questions about the new system please contact the school

CaterLink endeavour to maintain good value for money and have kept the price at £2.34 per day, £11.80 per week.  

Healthy and nutritious meals are cooked on site daily by our excellent "new" cook Emma Rawlings and her new assistant Lisa Phillips.   The school hall provides a sociable and pleasant environment for our pupils to eat their lunches under the supervision of her Lunchtime Supervisor team.  We regularly have up to 70% of the pupils taking a school lunch.  Pupils are of course welcome to bring a packed lunch which they are able to eat alongside their friends who have a cooked meal.

For more information about Caterlink and a copy of the current menu please click on the links below.

Payment for School Lunches

In an attempt to become a cashless school, parents are encouraged to pay for their child's lunches using the Parent Pay on line payment system - see link below.  If you need any help using the system or are a new user please contact the school office.
