Return to Parents


At Panshanger Primary School we use Hertfordshire Catering Limited to supply and cook all of our meals. We use the pupil choice menu which changes twice yearly.

HCL is proud to say that not only are their menus fully compliant with the Government’s School Food Standards, but they deliver over and above these standards, by ensuring that the meals are freshly cooked using quality ingredients, which have been ethically sourced.

All meals are ordered and paid for through SchoolGrid.

We would encourage you to pre-order meals in advance at least one week ahead or for the whole term.  Meals can be amended or cancelled before 8.45 a.m. on the day your child is taking the meal.  Parents are able to set up a direct debit facility with SchoolGrid for meal payments.  Details can be found on the app.

The cost of a school meal is £2.80 per day.

All children in Reception and KS1 are entitled to a Universal free school meal – this means you do not need to pay for any meals until your child reaches Year 3.  You will however still need to place the order for the meal choice.

If you think your child is entitled to Free School Meals (this is different to Universal free school meals) please go to the link below to apply :-
