At Belle Vue Primary School, we use Orian to provide our school meals service. Cooked meals, including a vegetarian option, are prepared daily in our kitchen and children are offered a choice of main courses and desserts. Salads and fruit are always available. Meals are eaten in the dining hall.
The daily cost of a meal is £2.00. Meals should be pre-ordered and paid for 2 weeks in advance using the Orian Lunch Shop website. If you do not have access to the internet at home, please see the school office who will be happy to help.
Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch which are eaten in the dining hall. Packed lunches should be in a sealed, named container. No fizzy drinks or sweets are allowed - instead we encourage lots of water, fruit and vegetables.
Two weeks notice must be given to alter your child's lunch arrangements.
From September 2014 all primary school pupils in reception class, year 1 and year 2 are eligible to receive a school meal free of charge. That’s a school meal each day for the full school year for every child in these year groups at no cost to you as a parent or guardian – a saving in the region of £400 per year per eligible child. Hwever if you receive one of the qualifying benefits for Free School Meals and the Clothing Grant, please still apply as this still qualifies your child for the Pupil Premium, which is extra funding for the school to help your child, full details of this can be found in the Pupil Premium section on the website.
