Lunch Menus


At Roger Ascham Primary School, all meals are prepared and cooked in the school kitchen. Children are served in year groups inside the school halls. Schools meals are provided by Waltham Forest Catering. There is also provision for children to eat a packed lunch and have a drink (no glass bottles please) brought from home. Children often choose to eat their packed lunch outside when the weather allows.


This year (2023/24) school meals are free for all pupils. This is due to The Mayor of London providing funding to all London Primary schools as a cost of living support measure.


Some of you will still prefer to provide your child with a packed lunch. At Roger Ascham we ask for parents/carers to inform us of their children’s dinner arrangements in advance. Please contact the school office to let us know whether your child will be having a packed lunch or school dinner and please keep to this decision for at least a term. Please note: we are a nut free school. If you provide a packed lunch, please do not include ingredients with nuts.



It is possible for arrangements to be made for children with special dietary requirements. Contact or visit the school office for more details:  020 8527 3157 or
