Here at Binfield Primary School, we pride ourselves on being the ONLY primary school in Bracknell Forest that has its own in-house catering. This gives us the opportunity to cook fresh, ‘home-cooked’ food everyday which in turn provides your child with a nutritious balanced meal.
Cooking meals from scratch enables us to know exactly what is in every dish and our meat and vegetables are sourced from local suppliers.
We write the menus on a seasonal four weekly cycle and all menus adhere to the Food Standards Agency requirements.
Each week, your child will be able to choose from one of four different main course options per day. We also provide the children with a choice of, dessert of the day, fresh fruit or cheese and biscuits. We listen to requests and ideas from the children regarding school lunches and try to incorporate them where possible.
We offer visitor meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for parents of children from all year groups.

If your child has a specific food allergy, please let the office know. We will arrange for you to discuss your child’s needs with the Catering Manager.
The children may choose to bring a packed lunch instead, following the school’s healthy packed lunch policy. If you do not wish to comply with the policy, you are welcome to collect your child and take them home for lunch each day.
If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, please come in and talk to the office staff or Sharon Cox (our Family Support Adviser) about how we can support you. For further information, have a look at this Free School Meals Form and Information
It is really helpful to your child if they are able to use a knife and fork correctly. We expect and encourage good table manners to be used during lunchtime.
