Lunch Menu


All food at Cookham Dean CE Primary School is cooked on site by Caterlink.  The menu changes on a 3 week rota, a copy of the menu is sent home with all children at the beginning of term, there are extra copies available in the hall lobby area or please check the menu which is displayed on the noticeboard in the KS2 playground.    Our aim is to provide a menu to encourage children to develop a healthy attitude towards food.  Vegetables are freshly prepared.  Recipes are available upon request.  Parents are welcome to come and join us for lunch, please let the school office know in the morning  before 9.30am latest if you will be joining your child, along with payment of £3.00  


How to order a meal

Please pay for all school meals in advance via the online payment system, details of which will be sent home once your child starts Year 3 or is new to the school in KS2.  Children’s meals are £2.00 each (for KS2 children). If your child requires a main, vegetarian option or jacket potato, please make sure your child books this in with the class teacher in the morning.  An online payment does not mean a meal has been booked.  On the days that your child has a hot school meal, please remind them that they need to put their hand up in  registration to order it with their class teacher. 

If your child is going to be late for any reason and requires a hot lunch then please contact the office before 9.30am


If you require any help with the online payment system please visit  under the ‘General Information’ tab there is a link to the parent user guide, which should have the answer to any queries. 


Free School Meals

ALL children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a universal free school meal.  HOWEVER if you are in receipt of benefits and believe you would have been entitled to a free school meal prior to the new government funding, please contact the school office as we are able to earn extra funding just by registering a pupil. 


If you think you may be eligible for free school meals or pupil premium funding please check the website
