Children may bring a packed lunch and drink to eat in our dining hall. We ask parents to pack this in a plastic box, clearly marked with the child’s name. As with most schools, we do have some children at Morley with nut allergies. An allergic reaction for these children can prove to be very dangerous. In support of them, therefore, we ask that packed lunches or snacks do not contain nuts or peanuts (including peanut butter).
School dinners are provided by our catering company, Pabulum. Meals are prepared and cooked on the premises and children are able to choose from a varied menu, including items for special diets such as vegetarian. We operate a three week menu system, with a different weekly menu being offered over the 3 week period. This is our current menu which will run until October 2023.
All children are eligible for a free school lunch until the end of KS1. From Year 3 onwards you will need to pay for any school lunch which is provided unless you have applied for and been awarded free school meals. (see below)
