Our school lunches are provided by Harrison Catering, they provide healthy, balanced meals at a cost of £2.30 per day.
Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal.
Pupils who pay for school meals but have 2 weeks of debt or more on their account will not be served a school meal. Parents will be contacted to either pay the debt immediately or provide a packed lunch.
In addition, pupils in Year 6 will be refused a meal if they carry any debt. These meals must be paid in advance to prevent debt remaining once the child has left the school.
This decision has been made by the Ealing School Catering Consortium (ESCC) and aims to prevent parents building up debt, which is often difficult to recover.
If you are paying for your child to have a school meal, make sure your Harrison account is in credit. You need to allow a minimum of 24 hours for any payment to show as a credit on your meals account. It is best to pay in advance for each week to avoid any inconvenience for you or your child.
Payments can only be made with a debit card or a credit card. You can pay either online at www.ealingmeals.co.uk or by phoning 0208 280 0312 / 0208 280 0318 / 0208 280 0319
We ask for your co-operation on this matter to ensure we can continue to provide hot healthy lunches for your child that keeps them on the go and ready to learn.

Check if you qualify for Free School Meals
The ‘Free School Meals / Pupil Premium Service’ is a web site where parents can quickly and easily check eligibility for free school meals and, if eligible, also gain welcome additional funding for their child’s school, known as ‘Pupil Premium’.
If eligible, you are not obliged to accept the free school meals for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding gained would still benefit education provision at the school.
By entering essential details into the web site, the online application process links to the Department for Education system for checking eligibility and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify the school.
