Ranelagh Primary School

School Lunch Menu

Children may go home at lunchtime or they may stay at school and have a packed lunch or a school dinner. Children going home for lunch should leave the premises at 12:00 (KS1) or 12:30 (KS2) through the school office. Children should not return until 5 minutes before the start of afternoon school to the school office.

Healthy Packed Lunch

If you wish your child to bring a healthy packed lunch the arrangement should be made on Monday morning and should be for the whole week. Please ensure that the meal is in a packed lunch box which is clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. 

School Lunch

All pupils are entitled to a free school meal as part of the Newham Pilot. The meals are provided by Newham Catering Service and Halal meat is used at all times. If your child has special dietary requirements please inform us, and we will pass the details to the cook.

Free School Meals  

Every primary child in Newham receives a free school meal.

Although all pupils now receive a free meal it is essential that parents continue to update their eligibility as this may affect other things such as when children go to Fair Play House. 

All families need to complete the ‘Eat For Free’ form on the Newham Website at:

Healthy schools

At Ranelagh we are very proud to be an accredited Healthy School. This is in recognition of the work we have done to promote Healthy lifestyle. This includes the provision of fruit snacks at morning playtime for Key stage 1 and encouraging children to bring in drinking water (in plastic bottles not glass) for use throughout the day. We have also worked closely with Newham Catering Services to ensure a healthy and balanced meal is provided. For more information regarding the menus please contact the school office.

We also provide a large number of opportunities for extra sporting activities at the school during lunch times and at the end of the day. Please see our notice boards or speak to a member of staff if you are interested in sending your children.
