School Meals

Schools Meals

School meals are provided by an external company, Orian Solutions Ltd. 

  • meat and fish dishes
  • vegetarian dishes
  • baked potatoes
  • sandwiches 
  • a choice of dessert or yoghurt
  • salad bar, bread and fruit
  • water

Our menu is based on a 3-week cyle. The menu changes every day for a three-week period and then repeats after three weeks. There is usually an autumn/winter and a spring/summer menu. The cook does have some flexibility in deciding what to cook, taking the children’s preferences into account, as long as it meets Manchester Fayre’s nutritional standards. All parents are provided with an Orian account so that they can pay for and order school meals.  School meals for each day need to be paid for (if non entitled to a free school meal) and ordered by 9.30am (preferably before so that the school cook knows how many portions to prepare).




Charges for School Meals

The school charges for school meals and parents must may this charge in advance. The school operates a no-debt policy with regard to school meals. The charge for school meals can be found on a Charges and Remissions page.

Universal Free School Meals

At this time, all children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal, regardless of any entitlement due to a family claiming benefits.

Free School Meals (through benefit entitlement

Children in other year groups, including nursery, may be entitled to a free school meal if their parents are receipt of certain benefits.  Please ask at the school office or click here for more information.  Parent who are in receipt of benefits are asked to apply for Free School entitlement even if their child does not have a school meal.  This is because the school receives additional funding for every child who is entitled to free school meals.
