All children who attend Martin Frobisher Infant School full time are entitled to a free school meal. This is funded by the government under the Universal free school meals initiative. All meals are cooked on site by our fantastic cook and catering team and we have a high uptake of children having a meal provided to them in school. The meals are cooked fresh each day and all meet the national food standards. This could save you over £600 in food bills and many hours in preparing a packed lunch.
Meals can be chosen at home if you have an account with School Grid, or in school. This process ensures that your child will always get the meal of their choice no matter when they come into the dining hall. All allergies can be catered for and there is a wide range of food choices to choose from including a sandwich and jacket potato option daily. Catering Leeds also cater for special meal days most months and on these days we encourage all children to try the meal.
If parents choose to send their child to school with a packed lunch it should meet the standards within our Packed Lunch Policy.
