Down Ampney Primary School

School Dinners

We are very fortunate that the children can order fresh hot meals daily, catered by Aspens.

They work very hard to develop delicious menus designed to meet strict Government health and nutritional guidelines which are developed specifically to meet the needs of young children.

Pupils with medical dietary requirements can receive meals tailored to their needs, to arrange this for your child please contact the school directly.

School dinners are prepared and served to all pupils in the School Hall with all the year groups sharing the same facilities.

Lunches cost £2.40 per day. Meals are ordered and paid for online through School Money and can be ordered from a week up to a term.

Please see our menu below for more details.
