School Meals

School Meals

School meals are provided by Harrisons Catering Services, which is an independent catering company that provides healthy, freshly cooked food. Their menu is published their web-site and is also available in leaflet from the school office.

Their menu is agreed by Ealing Education Contract Services, after a nutritional analysis. The menu meets with the National Standards for Primary Schools set by the Department for Education.

  • Click here to apply online.

School Meal Debt

Whilst the majority of families keep their school meal account topped up, there are some parents who persistently run up debt on their Harrison Catering account. Where these debts are incurred the school is charged, this means that money which should be spent on our children’s education is used to pay for debts accumulated by a minority of parents.

When an invoice is issued by Harrison Catering to the school for school meals debt, an invoice will be raised by the school to the parent on our ParentPay system. If an invoice from the school is issued this needs to be paid within 14 days at the school office or online at www.parentpay.com.

After 28 days if the debt remains outstanding, parents will be invited to attend a meeting with school. In some circumstances parents can arrange a payment plan, this will only be for invoices issued by the school and must be done with the agreement of Mrs Hancock, the school business manager, who can be contacted via the school office.

If you receive a message from Harrison’s Catering to top up your account you need to contact them to pay at www.ealingemeals.com

It is schools policy that any child with a debt of over £20.00 will not be served a meal. This debt could be either with Harrison Catering, an outstanding invoice on ParentPay for school meal debt or a combination of both. In these circumstances parents will initially be sent a text message advising them of the above.

We would like to remind parents that it is a parent’s responsibility of care to ensure that food is provided for their children at lunchtime, not the schools. Please do not put your child in the embarrassing position of being refused a meal, please keep your school meals account topped up.

Packed Lunches

If you would prefer for your child to bring a packed lunch from home, please ensure that Harrisons Catering are aware of this so that you are not incorrectly charged for meals. It is important that packed lunches provides as healthy and balanced a lunch as what they would eat at home.

This means plenty of foods that contains the nutrients that children need and fewer foods high in sugar and saturated fat.
