School Lunches

Hot lunches are made onsite by our midday supervisors each day.  All children are eligible for free hot meals through the government Universal Infant School Meals scheme.  We believe that the hot school lunch is better for the children’s learning and health.  We fully support the evidence that states:-


  • Children are better prepared for learning if they eat well
  • Children make more progress if they have eaten the right nutritional lunch
  • Eating hot lunches is an important social occasion and the children learn vital social skills


Meal times are part of the experience of coming to Dropmore; sitting together at a table, sharing, chatting, using a knife and fork, learning about and trying different foods.
