School Lunch


We are delighted to announce that our caterers are Cucina - part of the Impact Food Group.  The children will have their choice of a hot or cold lunch chosen by parents online via ParentPay.  Please see attached menu. 

ParentPay - Cashless Catering

The school uses an online pre-ordering system for school meals. Parents are asked to create their child's ParentPay account when starting school, you will receive the details to do this in the days following your child starting with us.

All meals must be ordered in advance before 7.00am on the day via your child's ParentPay account.  If your child is in receipt of free school meals, or universal infant free school meals, you must still pre-order as above.

The school no longer accepts cash or cheque payments for school meals.  If you require any assistance setting up your ParentPay account, or using the system, please contact the school office.

Remember - your account must be in balance otherwise it is your responsibility to provide a packed lunch.  

Ryefield Lunches are provided by our expert cooks and are nutritionally analysed to ensure our students receive the best food.

Check your child's eligibility for Free School Meals HERE.

Please have a look at our new Autumn/Winter menu below.

Food and Drink during the school day

Children are welcome to bring a healthy packed lunch from home.

Children under 5 are offered free Milk at school. If you wish for your child to still receive milk after they turn 5 please go to and register your child. Children up to year 2 also receive fruit each day as part of The National School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme. Children in KS2 are encouraged to bring a healthy snack from home for playtimes. 

All children should bring a reusable water bottle to school. Drinking water is available in all classrooms and the lunch halls.
