School meals

"I like Fridays best of all - fish and chips!" Year 1 pupil.

School meals are critical to students’ well-being and readiness to learn. Research has shown that children who eat breakfast and lunch at school rely on school meals for half of their daily energy intake.

With this in mind, Carden provides fresh and filling school lunches for our pupils so they have the energy they need to play and focus.

A number of dietary requirements can be catered for including vegetarian, halal and gluten free.  Please contact the school for more information.  Meals can be booked on the day or in advance via the Parent Pay app.

Children from Reception to Year 2 are currently entitled to universal free school meals.  Unless children are entitled to free school meals, those in Years 3-6 need to pay for meals using Parent Pay.

Below is the latest seasonal menu.
