Nut Free School

Please note from Monday 10th June 2019 we will be a nut free school. We ask that you do not send nuts or nut products into school for snacks or in packed lunches. We also ask you to be mindful of nut allergies if sending birthday treats in or baking cakes for school in the future. We thank you for your cooperation and support in this matter.

School Lunches

School Lunches are freshly prepared and cooked on the premises by our resident cook Mrs. Stephanie Beal. The lunch menus consist of a hot two-course meal, offering a choice of main courses, vegetables, salads and desserts.

Our meals provider is Eats (East Anglian Taste for Schools). Eats produce nutritionally balanced menus and offer choice for vegetarians. Menus are available online at http://www.eats-catering.co.uk/. Occasionally these may be changed to special themed menus.

Suffolk school meals are excellent value, costing £2.30 per meal (which is exempt from VAT)

School lunchtime gives children a good opportunity to socialise and enjoy a meal together.

Choosing a school lunch helps children by:

  • Providing a tasty, nutritious and great value for money meal (that meets latest lunch standards).
  • Helping them to concentrate, learn and develop their social skills.
  • Providing a balanced diet and the chance to try new foods.
  • Enjoying their lunch in a safe and supervised environment with their friends.
  • Showing in school what we mean by a healthy and balanced diet.

Pay by Cheque

Parents and carers should log onto the system and search for Hollesley Primary School.  You will then be able to enter the details of your child(ren), the date of the first meal and how many meals payment is for.  The date of the first meal must be at least two days in the future, and there is a minimum payment of  days meals although meals do not have to be taken consecutively.
