At Crawley Ridge Junior School, we are pleased to be able to offer healthy daily menus.
Our meal service is run by Twelve15. The lunchtime service is provided by a working kitchen and all food is cooked on the premises. Twelve15 continually strive to improve the diets of our children. It is closely monitored by the Governing Body who instigate changes as required and on a continual basis. Mechanically recovered meat and genetically modified ingredients are not used. For further information on school meals, please visit https://itstwelve15.co.uk/.
There is always a healthy sandwich bag option alongside the two hot meal choices.
Lunchtime is supervised, and children are encouraged to eat all their main course before tucking into a delicious pudding, or cheese and biscuits.
In Year 3 to 6 the cost of a school meal is £2.60. This is increasing to £2.70 per meal in April 2023.
If your child has a special dietary requirement, has a food allergy, or does not eat a particular food for religious, or ethical reasons, please contact the School Office immediately. It is important that you let us know of any allergies even if your child has a packed lunch every day, as your child's class may have a tasting session as part of the curriculum.
You will be asked to complete a 'Special Diet Request Form' (see attachment below) and provide medical evidence, if appropriate. The catering team will assess your application and determine the appropriate menu for your child.
Our catering team, Twelve15, cater for 14 recognised food allergens: celery, crustaceans, dairy, egg, fish, gluten, lupin, molluscs, mustard, nut, peanut, sesame, soya, sulphites. They also support vegetarian, vegan, pork and beef free diets. For more information about the allergens contained in our menus, including a list of the 14 key allergens and the dishes they appear in, please visit Twelve15's website, https://twelve15.mysaffronportal.com/
