Just as children are laying the foundations for a life of learning and rich experience, they are also taking early steps towards a healthy mind and body. This is where food plays an essential role.

Our catering providers bring the fun and excitement of food to our youngest children. Colours, textures and taste are there to be explored and enjoyed. There is always something on the menu for each child to enjoy.

Our providers supply nutritious and balanced meals with varying menus which change each term. We strive to provide tasty and nutritious meals whilst impacting the environment as little as possible. School dinners are £2.34 per day.

Our kitchens minimise the use of single-use plastics in the storage, perperation and serving of food.

Every Thursday here at Hatfield Woodhouse Primary we enjoy Lucky Plate Thursday. This encourages those more reluctant eaters to enjoy a school meal and be in with a chance of earning 5 Dojo points! If they find a sticker on their plate or packed lunch pack they’ve won!

We also celebrate the arrival of the Muffin Fairy every Friday. A child from each class is chosen and presented with a muffin to enjoy with their lunch from the Muffin Fairy each week to reward their application of the Woodhouse Wows and RESPECT values.

Drinking water is freely available and children are encouraged to bring in reusable bottles.

Alongside the work we do to reduce single-use plastics across the business, we also recycle our food waste into green energy through ReFood.
