Lunchtime and School Meals

Eating a healthy and balanced lunch is vital to a child’s learning.

Children can either bring a packed lunch or have a school dinner. We encourage all meals to be healthy and nutritious.

Take a look at our School Menu here: Brownhill Menu – Starting Week 02.09.2019

School Meals

To make school mealtime even more appealing and easier we have a special way of doing things. Each day during registration time at 9.00 am your child will select their meal type & be given a corresponding colour-coded wristband. For example, red for the main meal of the day, blue for Halal & green for a vegetarian option, yellow for sandwich and purple for a jacket potato. Dinner staff will then use the colour coded band to make each child receives their chosen food.

How to Pay

The cost of a school dinner for all children is £2.30 per day, £11.50 per week.  Dinner money for the whole week should be brought to the school office on the first day of the week.

It should be in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, class and the correct amount clearly visible on the front.  If you wish to pay by cheque please make it payable to Co-op Academies Trust T/A Brownhill.

If you think you may be entitled to free school meals we urge you to contact The Benefits Agency who will be able to advise you how to claim them. Or see the Leeds City Council Website for more details.

Packed Lunches

Parents who wish their children to bring a packed lunch are asked to prepare a healthy packed lunch with no fizzy drinks or glass bottles in a labelled lunch box.  This should be brought with the child on a morning.

Should you wish your child to change from school meals to packed lunches or vice versa please inform the school office a week in advance as meals have to be ordered.  Because of the way our meals are ordered and made it not possible for your child to change from day today.

During lunchtime children are in the care of Lunchtime Supervisors who lead play activities, administer first aid and take care of the children’s safety and well being.

Please see our main office to

  • Pay for school dinners
  • Choose your preference of either school dinner or packed lunch for the half term
