School Dinners






Our meals are provided by Kirklees Catering Service, which holds the Food For Life Partnership Gold Award. This means you can be sure our school meals are of a consistently high standard and contain no artificial colours, preservatives or hydrogenated fats. Our school kitchen was awarded five stars for food hygiene and has been awarded gold Food For Life Partnership Award. This means more organic and responsibly sourced food is on the lunchtime menu. As a school, Hillside holds the silver Food For Life Award.

The cost of a school dinner is currently £2.35 a day. All full-time children up to the end of Year 2, are able to have a free school dinner as part of the government’s Universal Free School Meals scheme. This only entitles them to a school dinner. If you are receiving certain benefits, you may be entitled to benefit-related free school meals. This will also mean your child will receive free milk and extra money to support their learning. You will need to register each child individually. This has to be done online, via the Kirklees Council website. If you need support doing this, please contact Mrs Mellor, who can apply on your behalf.

We hold regular ‘themed’ lunches, such as Bonfire Night, Chinese New Year and Christmas. These are offered to children who normally have a packed lunch and prove very popular. We also offer a ‘Friday Feast’, where packed lunch children can have a school dinner once a week. Look out for texts and emails.



Please remember that school dinners are paid online using the Parent Pay facility. Please click on the following link for further information; Parent Pay
