School Meals at Swing Gate Infant School and Nursery


The midday meal is an important part of the day. It gives the children an opportunity to develop their social skills. We would like as many children as possible to avail themselves of the school meal service. 


From September 2014 school meals are free for all school aged children up to the age of 7. We really hope that everyone will take advantage of this. We know that you will encourage your child to try school meals if they do not currently have them. However, we understand that some children will not necessarily like the options available and would prefer a packed lunch from home.

If you would like to introduce your child gradually to school dinners then please let us know which days you would like.

Please note: Half a term's notice is required if your child wishes to change their dinner pattern.


There will always be a choice of hot meal, vegetarian or cold choice (except Friday when the options are meat or vegetarian main).

School meals are fully prepared at the school by Hertfordshire Catering.
