Joydens Wood Junior School


School dinners at Joydens Wood Junior School are provided by Harrison Catering Services and are prepared and cooked on-site using fresh ingredients.

Harrison is committed to providing balanced meals that meet school food standards and help to educate students on how to make healthier
food choices.  As well as our main meal served with vegetables, we have a salad bar and home-made bread.  Every day there is an offer of fresh fruit and yoghurt.

Dinners cost £2.50 a day or £12.50 a week and are paid on-line through ParentPay.

To order school lunches for the week ahead, you must have placed your order by midnight on the Sunday before.  We will send you out texts every Friday to remind you.           

We often hold surveys to find out what are our favourite lunches.  Our last favourite lunch day was Thursday 17th January when we had sausages and mashed potato, margarita pizza followed by chocolate sponge and chocolate sauce.

There are times during the year when we ask parents to join us for lunch.  So far this academic year, parents of children in year 3, 4 and 5 have been invited to lunch.

Our School Parliament work with our chefs to help pick our menus by having tasting sessions.  All of the children in the school are also given the opportunity to help decide on our menu by filling in a card stating their favourite meal.  Our new menu will be in place from September.
