Lunch Menus

Ridgeway school meals are amazing! Ridgeway children have the choice of a delicious school meal or a packed lunch. If your child has a school meal they can pre-select their main course which means they will always have something to eat which they will enjoy. School meals cost £2.10 per day and payment of £10.50 is payable on a Monday morning to the school office or through the class teachers.


Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,385)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit


If you think you are entitled to free school meals, or would like to check or just want to ask a question then please come to the school office.

If you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child then we ask that you read the packed lunch policy below. Packed lunches should contain healthy choices and should limit fatty, sugary and salty foods. No fizzy drinks are allowed


To support you in making healthy choices please click on the ‘Lunchbox Ideas’ link below.

If you wish to change from packed lunch to school meals, or vice versa, you must give us at least one weeks notice as the kitchen will have already ordered food based on your selections. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
