Lunch Time at Fairfield
What kind of food is served for school dinners?
The Catering is provided by the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Catering Service. The kitchen is staffed by trained and caring professionals committed to achieving the highest standards. The menus provide a healthy, nutritious and balanced meal for your child, fully complying with the Government’s Nutritional Standards. In addition to the normal menu, Vale Catering can offer vegetarian and vegan menus as well as menus for specific medical diets. The vegetarian and vegan meals can be provided on receipt of a supporting letter from parents / carers whilst the meals for specific medical diets can be provided on receipt of a supporting letter from the pupil’s GP or Dietician.
To view the current primary school menus please click on the links at the foot of this page.
If you wish to view any of the diet menus, please ask at the school office.
How do I arrange for my child to have school dinners?
A dinner register is called by the class teacher every morning to ask children whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch. Payment is made via ParentPay which is a safe, secure and convenient method of online payment. Parents are asked to ensure that they keep their account in credit as the cashless till in the kitchen will not allow processing of any meal where an account is significantly in deficit.

Free School Meals
Application forms to apply for free school meals are available from the school office. If you are unsure of whether or not you are entitled to claim for free school meals, please contact Mrs. Duffy, School Administrator.
What can my child take for packed lunch?
Please give children a healthy and balanced meal with a drink, but no sweets or chocolate bars. No glass bottles, and no fizzy drinks please. Packed lunches should be in a container that is clearly marked with your child’s name.
