Eating in School

We like to promote healthy eating at Robert Le Kyng Primary School.

All children are encouraged to bring a piece of fruit or a veg to eat mid-morning which should be labelled. They will also need to bring a bottle of water, which they may drink from as needed throughout the day. All children under the age of seven have the option to receive a piece of fruit or veg daily, as part of the National School fruit and vegetable scheme. This promotes eating five portions of fruit and veg a day.  KS2 children also have the option to purchase fruit and veg from the school. Orders are placed every other term. Please contact the school office for further details.

We have recently been awarded the Bronze Award for completing the Healthy Schools Audit.

Lunch time is from 12.00pm to 1.00pm.

Packed lunch

We encourage you to send a lunch box with healthy options for your child. In the past we have had a visiting speaker in to talk about how to provide a healthy lunchbox.

Hot School Lunch

We currently use an external catering company called Coombs Catering which provides the school meals daily.  The menu for hot meals can be viewed via the following link :

Meals need to be ordered by 3pm the day before or 3pm on a Friday for the following Monday.

To order your child’s school dinner, you simply log in to your parent mail account, select the ‘shop’ option on the left hand side.
On the drop down box, select ‘School Meals’ and there is all of the school dinners available to order for the first term. When you add a particular day to the cart, there is a drop down option for you to select the Main course of the day, which will consist of a Meat, Vegetarian and Jacket Potato Option.

If you are entitled to a Free School Meal or Universal Free School Meal, you order in exactly the same way but when you add the item to the cart, the price is automatically calculated to zero.

If you have any queries or questions on the new meal ordering system, you can contact Craig Coombs on


Milk is provided free of charge for children under 5 year olds. Please ask the office staff for an application form. If your child is over 5 years old and would like milk mid-morning, you can purchase this from the ‘Cool Milk for Schools’ scheme. Forms are available from the school office or on our forms download page.


As we have a child in the school that has a severe allergic reaction to fish, our school meal menus contain no fish. We also request that children’s lunch boxes contain no fish or shellfish. We understand that this may not be easy for some families, but we would value your support with this.
