Lunch Menu

Lunch Menu and Packed Lunch Ideas


Lunchtimes are an important part of the school day.  Our aim is for every child to have an enjoyable lunchtime that is safe and happy.  


Activities and small equipment are organised and supervised by our midday supervisory assistants. We are continuing to improve the school grounds. During playtime and lunchtime, the children are encouraged to play together, exercise or spend time in the quiet area.  


Hot Dinners


Since September 2014, all Infant aged children have been entitled to a free school meal, this was a government decision after a recommendation in the School Food Plan. At Newnham Infant and Nursery School, like many schools in Hillingdon, we use The Pantry to provide our school meal service.


Cooked meals including a vegetarian option, jacket potatoes and a choice of sandwiches are prepared at our school and delivered to our servery. You can order the lunches via The Pantry website.  Hot meals are eaten in the school dining hall.  


If your child has any particular dietary requirements please inform The Pantry.


Packed lunches


If your child prefers packed lunches that is absolutely fine.  Packed lunches need to be provided in a named lunch box.


Drinks should be in an unbreakable container or carton. We ask that no nut products - including peanut butter - are included as some children have severe allergic reactions.


The children eat their packed lunch with their friends in the hall in their year group.


We strive to be a nut free school.  Please ensure Packed Lunches DO NOT contain any nuts 


Please do not send in fizzy drinks or sweets.
