Lunch Menus


At Roger Ascham Primary School, all meals are prepared in the school kitchen. Children are served in year groups inside the school halls. There is provision for children to eat a packed lunch and have a drink (no glass bottles please) brought from home.


The price of a school meal changes from time to time; the current price is £2.30. Dinners should be paid for in advance via ParentPay. ParentPay is an online payment system. Should you require log in details to ParentPay please contact the school office.


Please note: 

~    if arrears build up, the school will be unable to provide a meal until the debt is cleared. 


~    if your child has an appointment and is going to arrive in school after lunch, please let the office know in advance.



Free school meals are now administered by the Benefits Service along with Housing Benefits and Council Tax Benefit. To apply for Free School Meals you should complete the online application form from London Borough of Waltham Forest's website.


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.


Whilst we are happy to manage lunchtimes so that children can eat and enjoy shared recreational time, on the rare occasions where there are serious concerns about a child’s ability to behave appropriately, we reserve the right to ask for that child to go home at lunchtimes.




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
