Barn Croft Primary School

School Meals

We have three options at lunchtime and the most popular of these is the school dinner. Our school meals are cooked fresh every day in our own kitchen. There is always plenty of choice with two or three savoury choices including vegetarian options, halal meat and a daily salad bar. The cook also prepares a daily pudding or there is the option of fresh fruit or yogurt. The menu changes termly so that it includes seasonal changes - please click on the School Lunch logo to go to the Waltham Forest lunches website where you can access this term's menus.   

If you believe that your child may be entitled to free school meals then it is necessary to apply online at or ask at the school office and staff will be happy to help you with this process.  The Waltham Forest Free School Meals Leaflet can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
The second option if you prefer is for your child to bring a healthy packed lunch to school. Fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets are not allowed and we do not have  the facilities to reheat food from home. A guide to health Packed Lunches can be downloaded below.
Finally, your child may go home for lunch.
