Southfield Primary School

Harrison Catering

School lunches are prepared on site by Harrison Catering.

To find a copy of the weekly menus please click here. Vegetarian options are available every day. If your child does not eat certain foods because of religious belief please let the school know and click to find the weekly dairy-free, egg-free and wheat-free menus if your child has a food intolerance.

You need to register with Harrison and make payments at www.ealingmeals.comThe current cost per day for school meals is £2.35.  If your child is absent you will not be charged and you will receive credit against the next payment. Parents may pay for the whole half term or term in advance if they wish.

However, the current online meals payment portal will no longer be available to make payments for meals beyond 31 July 2021. If you are paying for your child’s meal online please do not make any payments beyond 23 July 2021. The current online payment portal is being replaced with our brand new online payment portal, details of which will be sent to you at a later date by the school. If there is money outstanding on the current payment portal beyond 23 July 2021 when the school closes for the summer break, our payments team will be in touch to refund your money.

If you receive Income Support or think that your child is entitled to free school meals, contact the school office for more information and see also: http://www.ealing.gov.uk/services/education/financial_assistance/

The school has two canteens, one for infants and one for juniors, with staggered lunchtimes from 11.45 am to 1.00 pm. In the infants canteen, children from Reception classes go to lunch first. This means they have the canteen to themselves for at least 15 minutes before the first sitting children come out. We have found this particularly successful in helping new children get used to the lunchtime routine. Lunchtime supervisors are present in the canteen to assist children and to take them to the playground where they are also supervised. 

PACKED LUNCHES

Children may bring packed lunches to eat instead of school dinners.  Please do not give children nuts or food containing nuts as we have several children in school who have severe allergies. We are striving to become a healthy school, therefore we encourage only healthy treats in lunch boxes (no chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks).

Children may only change to or from school dinners after giving a week’s notice to Harrison Catering. Please be sure to notify the catering company in advance if you wish to make such a change.
