Lunch Menu

At Alderwood, all meals are freshly prepared and cooked onsite by our Chartwells team.   


All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school hot lunch, paid for by the Government. We encourage all families with children in these year groups to take up this offer of a nutritious, healthy school lunch.   


When joining Alderwood, children in Reception to Year 2 will automatically receive a meal unless we are notified otherwise by parents.  


There is a small, daily fee for Years 3 – 6, unless you are entitled to free school meals based on household income. The cost of a school meal is now £2.59 per day / £12.95 per week. All monies must be paid in advance weekly by Monday morning via our My Child at School app. Please remember that school meals or packed lunches should be taken half termly. If your child wishes to change, please inform our School Office. 


Please speak to our School Office for further information or support with identifying if you may be eligible for free school meals.
