School Meals

We are delighted that hot dinners will resume at Riverside on Wednesday 14th October.

We will use a 3 week rolling menu for school lunches, with a hot or cold meal option for each day. Click on the link above to download your own copy of the menu for each week.

All children in F2, Year 1 or Year 2 are entitled to a Universal Infant Free School Meal (UIFSM) everyday.

For children in KS2 (Years 3-6) a school meal costs £2.25 a day unless your child is eligible for free school meals.

Payment for meals must be paid on Arbor in advance. You can do this by topping up your account via the Parent Portal Arbor app or the Arbor website. If you are unable to pay via the app, we can now take payments over the phone with your bank card. We will not be taking cash payments for meals.

The kitchen staff will only be making hot and cold dinners for the amount of meals ordered. To ensure your child gets a school meal (if required), you must order this in advance - no later than 12pm the day before.

With hot meals starting again on Wednesday, you must order a meal for Wednesday by 12pm on Tuesday at the latest. You must also specify whether you are requesting the hot or cold option, please do not just request a 'school meal' - you must specify which option.

This will be the same for every school meal from now on - if you would like your child to have a school meal, this must be ordered by 12pm the day before.

If you know your child will have the same menu option each day, please let us know as soon as possible so we can set this up on your account.

To order a school meal, please either email the school office or send a message via Arbor. When this has been ordered with the school, you can top up your account on Arbor. Thank you.
