The Butts Primary School


School Lunches

All of our children remain at school during the mid-day break when they can have either a prepared school meal or bring a packed lunch. All children are supervised during the lunch break by our team of Lunchtime Supervisors. 

Our kitchen is run by HC3S, which produces a choice of well- balanced meals. Under the supervision of Ms Brierley, the Catering Team cook all meals on site every day.  

There are two choices of menu every day, one of which is always vegetarian. During the Autumn Term, Spring Term and first half of the Summer Term, there is also the option to have a Jacket Potato with a different topping each day. During the second half of the Summer Term, we offer a take-out menu alongside the standard menu so that the children can eat their lunch outside. Click here to see the current menu choices.

School lunches are free for all children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 (Year R, 1 and 2). 

For children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3,4,5,6), school lunches cost £3 per day. Payment for lunches should be made using our Online Payment System, Scopay. It is not necessary to pay for lunches in advance but we would ask parents to ensure that lunch debts are settled each week. 

Children of parents in receipt of certain benefits may be eligible for Free School Meals. For further information, please click on the link below.


Packed Lunches

As a school we aim to promote a healthy lifestyle. If you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child, please ensure that this contains a healthy balanced meal and does not contain sweets or chocolates.

We are a nut-free school so please avoid all nut products. Thank you for your support with this.
