Innovate is proud to be the Catering Services Provider at Kingfield Primary School
Innovate Services provide delicious hot meals for you to pre-order online. Innovate believe in creating healthy meals which inspire pupils and helps them concentrate at school to get the very best from their education.
Their website allows you to order lunches for your child for them to have at school. In this way you can choose what your child has for lunch, at home, with your child. You can choose weekly, half termly or termly. Choices must be made and paid for a week in advance.

At Kingfield we know that eating well is crucial to improving health as well as behaviour and by establishing healthy eating habits at a young age it gives children a great foundation for the future. We believe the key to success is to ensure the whole lunchtime experience is an educational, enjoyable and calm experience.
Innovate have designed a 3-weekly menu cycle, to see the menu please follow this link:
To ensure that all our children get the meal of their choice each day, we have introduced a colour wristband system. Each child having a school dinner will then be given a blue, red or yellow wristband. When your child arrives in the dining hall at lunchtime, they will trade their wristband for their school meal. As the kitchen staff will have been given the precise number of each meal that has been ordered, when it comes to service, every child gets the meal of their choice!
A modern dining hall is situated across the school playground. All children eat lunch in the dining hall and many teachers choose to have a school meal and eat with the children; it is a important part of the Kingfield school day.
Children who stay all day in nursery eat lunch in the dining hall with the nursery lunchtime staff. This is an enjoyable part of the day. Lunch costs £1.70 per day and lunches must be ordered and paid for inline on Innovate website
Reception, Year 1 and 2
All children in Year R, 1 and 2 have universal free school meals which, at Kingfield, means that these children are provided with a free, school lunch every day. Parents still order the lunch online on Innovate website and can choose the daily meal for thier child . Children have a hot food choice and salad and fresh bread is available every day. There is always a hot dessert choice as well as fresh fruit or yoghurt.
We believe this to be an important and beneficial part of the school day. All children are taught how to use a knife and fork as well as good table manners. This is also a social time when children talk with their peers and staff over lunch. Dietary needs are met by our caterers and for specific needs we invite parents in to discuss this with our caterers.
Children in key stage 2 may choose to have a school dinner. If you receive benefits such as income support, please come to the office to check if you are entitled to free school meals.The current cost for a school lunch is £2.20 per day. Parents order and pay for the lunch online on Innovate website and can choose the daily meal with their child . Children have a hot food choice and salad and fresh bread is available every day.

Alternatively children in key stage 2 can opt to bring a packed lunch to school. We have a School Food Policy which has details of what children are allowed to have in their lunch boxes. Please note we are a nut-free school and no nuts ( or sesame seeds) or products containing them, must be brought onto the school premises at any time. For children in key stage 2 school lunch requirements need to be advised on a half-termly basis. Changes within the half term cannot be accommodated.
