School meals

Welcome to Swansea school meals!

The primary school lunch consists of a freshly cooked two course meal with a drink and this is provided at every school. These meals meet the nutritional guidelines as required by the Welsh Government's Appetite for Life and it is our aim to make these attractive and appetising to children. There is a three weekly menu which is circulated via schools to all children in the autumn term outlining the choice. School meals can play a very important part in teaching children social skills and introducing them to different eating experiences.

Recent research suggests that eating healthily at regular times by combining a breakfast in the morning with a school lunch at midday can help children to learn better. Special dietary requirements eg. Coeliac and diabetic children can be catered for on request. Most primary schools offer a cashless system via internet payment or pay-point at your local shop. Your primary school will be able to provide you the detail of their dinner money collections.

Secondary schools provide a choice of meals and snacks to pupils available at both morning break and at lunch time. Any child can opt to have the meal of the day which has been nutritionally balanced and includes either a pudding or bottled water and represents value for money. Most schools have a cashless system where money or free meals allowance is loaded biometrically, allowing parents to pay by cheque in advance and for longer periods. Most schools enable parents to pay via the internet. If preferred, pupils may take a packed lunch to eat at school.
