School Meals

At Busbridge CofE Junior School the children can choose to have a school lunch cooked in our school canteen, or bring in a packed lunch from home. Our school meals are provided by Surrey County Council's Twelve15 (formerly Surrey Commercial Services), and are cooked in the school canteen by our on site catering team led by Mrs Jenny Welland.

We are proud that up to 200 of our children opt to have a school meal on a daily basis, and that Surrey County Council's Twelve15 (formerly Surrey Commercial Services) have been awarded 'Good Food for Life' accreditation for 288 schools with a gold rating for their menus. This follows a rigorous audit by the Soil Association to ensure the menus are compliant with the Government revised standards for school food.

We offer a healthy and nutritious daily menu of 3 two course options for the children to choose from. We operate a coloured band system which the children wear on their wrists to denote which menu option the child has chosen for the catering team to easily identify when they serve them at lunchtime.
Following lunch taster sessions last summer term which all the children had the opportunity to take part in recently, there were lots of positive comments from children and staff. From the children's voting, the catering team have 'personalised' the summer term menu to reflect all the feedback which is available to view below.
