Hot Lunches

Lime Tree provides hot meals which are cooked onsite every day and follow the government guidelines.

The school uses an external company called Harrison Catering who cook daily onsite.

For 2023/2024 and 2024/2025, all lunches are free to primary age school children.  However, in order to avoid over catering and waste, parents must choose and order meals via Parentpay. 

Some of our children might be entitled to benefit-based free school meal which generates income for the school. Note that this is different to the free lunches for all - if you have any queries about benefit-based free school meals, please contact the school office.  Again, this still needs to be ordered in advance.

If your child has a food allergy or intolerance, please see the Harrison Catering Food Allergies & Food Intolerances Policy and complete their Food Allergy and Food Intolerance Management Form, which must be returned to the school office.  Please also complete our Special Dietary Requirements form.

To order school meals, you will need to have activated your ParentPay account. Activation letters are sent to all parents on admission, but should you have any further queries, please contact the school office on 0208 390 9544.  If you have not yet activated your account, you will need to provide a packed lunch for your child.

Packed Lunches

Children without a booked hot lunch need to be provided with a packed lunch and a water bottle. This should be brought to school in a named lunchbox which can be easily stored. Please also include a fork/spoon if needed.

Please do not send cans or bottles of fizzy drinks, containers which might leak or flasks containing hot drink or food. Sweets, chocolate and crisps are not allowed.

We have children with serious allergies so please do not include ANY items with nuts such as peanut butter or chocolate spread nor any other ingredients containing nuts.
