School Lunches

At Constantine School, children are able to bring a healthy packed lunch or they can have a school lunch which is cooked on site by our wonderful cooks! We encourage parents where possible to reduce the use of single use plastics in packed lunches.

Special Requirements:
If your child has an allergy or special dietary requirement, then ensure that the kitchen are informed in advance and they will try their best to cater for individual needs. Use this link for further information on food allergens: Food Allergen Information


Your child may also bring a fruit or vegetable snack to school for a snack during morning playtime.

  • Acceptable snacks: fresh fruit and vegetables, raisins and other dried fruit.
  • Unacceptable snacks: nuts or nut products of any kind; processed fruit snacks such as fruit winders; chocolate or yoghurt coated raisins, cereal bars, yoghurt products.

For those who opt to have a school lunch, an online booking system called Parent Pay is in place. Parents and children are able to select lunches from the comfort of their own home. All families will be provided with login details; these details are needed to select the meals of their choice and to pay. If parents do not have a login then they should speak with the school secretary who will be happy to arrange one.

Parent Pay:

Due to current Covid 19 arrangements, all children in Reception class, Year 1 and 2 are required to have a school meal, except by arrangement in exceptional circumstances. Children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 may book school meal at a price of £2.35 per day, or £11.75 per week.

If families receive FSM or UIFSM they still need to select meals in advance to ensure that individuals are provided with food of their choice. If parents are experiencing problems, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the kitchen staff during the mornings.
