Here at Rushall Primary School we understand how important it is for children to eat a healthy and balanced meal during the day. Evidence shows that eating healthy foods has a positive impact on a child's ability to learn, concentrate and improves their overall behaviour.
Children are welcome to either have a school lunch or bring a packed lunch from home.
If you would like to order a school meal please fill in a slip in the dining room on a Monday morning outlining your requirements for that week. Please pay in cash for the whole week by placing money in an envelope with your child’s name marked on clearly. If you are unable to come into school to do this please contact the school office who will be able to advise you.
Our lunches are provided be Walsall Catering Service and are cooked on the premises by our school cooks, Sue and Leslie. A school dinner from the exciting Lunch menu costs just £1.95 per day and includes a hot meal with a choice of salad and vegetable side dishes or a prepared packed lunch including sandwiches, fruit and yoghurt.
If you would like to order a packed lunch - please let the kitchen know which sandwich filling you require. Menus are on display in the dining room and are available on the links below.
Drinking water is available to all children at lunchtime, and during the school day in class. At lunch time children may bring a drink in if they prefer, please send drinks in a suitable non-breakable bottle. No fizzy drinks please. Milk is free of charge to children under 5 and 25p from age 5 onwards.
School Lunches are free of charge to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Older children may still be entitled to free school meals, please contact the office if you would like an eligibility form.
For those children who choose to bring a packed lunch we encourage parents to include healthy sandwiches, snacks and drinks, (not fizzy) and support the school in maintaining it's 'Healthy School' status.
