School meals

For the 23-24 school year, all children at Nightingale can have a free school lunch.  This is funded by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.  

Our current menu is sent out each week in our e-newsletter and can also be downloaded below.  


Packed Lunches - what you need to know
Eating well is important. Children need to eat well as it will give them energy and nutrients to grow and develop, be healthy and active. A healthy, enjoyable lunch gives children the energy they need to learn and play at school.

We have strict guidelines for packed lunches eaten both in school and on trips out of school.  No sweets, crisps or chocolate are allowed in packed lunches and will be confiscated.  No drink other than bottled water or milk is allowed.  You must ensure that your child's lunch does not contain nuts as we are a nut free school due to allergies.
