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 our two dining halls.
The daily cost of a meal is £2.10. As of 1st April 2019 this will increase to £2.15 to take into account changes in legislation, National Living Wage and food inflation factors.
Meals should be pre-ordered and paid for in advance, by Thursday lunchtimes for the following week 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 very happy to help.
Please notify the school office in writing (including email) if you wish to change your child's lunch arrangements from school meals to packed lunch or vice versa at least a week in advance. This will enable the kitchen to order the correct amount of food for the week ahead.
Alternatively, children may bring a packed lunch which are also eaten in the dining halls. Packed lunches should be in a sealed, named container. No fizzy drinks or sweets please - we encourage lots of water, fruit and vegetables instead!
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.
However, if you receive one of the qualifying benefits for Free School Meals, please still apply as this 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.)
