Hot Lunches

At The Downley School we are very fortunate to have a purpose built restaurant which serves delicious hot and nutritious lunches.  Pupils and staff enjoy warm healthy meals in our very own 'Downley Diner'.

From Summer 2017 Innovate provide the lunches in the Downley Diner. All Reception pupils (over the age of 5) and all Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are entitled to free hot lunches. Key Stage 2 pupils will continue to pay for their lunches or bring sandwiches to eat. 

They offer a main meal, veggie meal, halal option, and jacket potato. They cost £2.30 each. Please order by Friday for the follwoing week via the Innovate website.

Please note that, if you are receiving certain benefits, your child may be eligible for Free School Meals plus additional funding for the school to support their learning.  Do check the leaflet below and return the form to the School Office at the earliest opportunity if you think it may be relevant.  This will be completely confidential.

Children who do not wish to have a hot lunch bring in packed lunches which they eat either in the Downley Diner or, weather permitting, outdoors.  As part of our healthy schools plan we do not allow sweets or fizzy canned drinks to be brought into school.

Nuts, or anything containing nuts, are not allowed in school at all due to allergies.
