School Lunches

Bewick Bridge works in partnership with Dolce catering to provide school lunches for pupils, staff and visitors which are cooked on the premises.  Each child has their own account with Live Kitchen which enables meal choices to be made at home.  In addition, parents and carers can be assured that allergies and dietary requirements are accurately recorded and that the options available meet the needs of their child.

Pupils in Reception, and Years 1 and 2 will be entitled to a free school meal. Parents will need to pay for school meals for children in Key Stage 2. The cost of a school meal with effect from September 2018 is £2.20, and this costs is usually revised in September of each year. For parents who are entitled to free school meals for their child there is no requirement to pay.  If you would like more information on Pupil Premium and free school meals please look at the Cambridgeshire County Council website which provides information on how to apply.

Our Reception pupils take their lunch first and the remaining classes come into the dining room on a rota basis.  Children line up at the serving hatch and select their Year Group and Name (help is always on hand with this) their chosen main meal is then displayed to the kitchen team and the child.    Once plated children have a choice of vegetables and dessert.  There is also a daily self service salad bar.


Alternatively, your child may bring a packed lunch to school. Lunch boxes should be named and should not include any food containing nuts, cans, glass bottles or fizzy drinks.  There are some great suggestions on the NHS change 4 life website which can be accessed on the icon below. Each class has a trolley for packed lunch boxes and children collect their lunch boxes before entering the school hall for lunch.  In good weather there is also the option to eat outside on picnic tables. Children having school meals or packed lunches may choose where to sit in the hall.
