School Meals

Giles Junior School has a reputation for producing excellent lunches. Most of our children have a school dinner and we do encourage our pupils to take the opportunity to have a hot meal at midday. There is a choice of meals each day and the menus run on a three-week rota.

School dinners may be paid using the School Gateway. They can be paid for weekly, in advance, or daily if preferred.


From September 2020, the cost of a school meal will be £2.70 per day. Please see downloads below for the menu of packed lunch options from September 2020.

From the 12th October 2020 we are now able to offer a choice of hot lunches for children. Please click on the download at the bottom of this page to see the menu!
