Universal infant free school meals 

All children in Reception are entitled to a free school meal every day whilst they are in school. We encourage parents to try their child on school dinners as children will have access to a variety of meals each week and are encouraged to try new foods. 


Please see below our sample menu for the types of food your child will be having for their lunch.

If you require any more additional information about St. Hilda's please feel free to navigate yourself around our school website. 

We hope you keep safe and we look forward to meeting you and your child very soon.
