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.
Children select the meal they would like at the start of the school day from the 4 options offered daily. This way they always get their choice of meal no matter when it is their turn to go into the dinner hall. There is always 2 hot meal choices available alongside a jacket potato and sandwich option.
The menu for the Autumn 2022 term can be found here and this is the upcoming Spring 2023 menu. There are also special Census Day themed meals throughout the year, the next one is Chinese New Year on Thursday 19th January 2023 as advertised on the poster. The following themed meal will be World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March 2023.
If parents choose to send their child to school with a packed lunch it should meet the standards within our Packed Lunch Policy.
