All children usually have the choice of having a hot school dinner, prepared in the school kitchen by our wonderful catering team or bringing a packed lunch to school.

Free School Meals

Through the government’s Free School Meals initiative, all children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive meals automatically.

We are really pleased that the Mayor is continuing to offer Universal free School Meals for all pupils in Years 3 to 6 attending primary schools in Westminster until July 2025. Please see the letter to parents from Sadiq Khan.

The Free School Lunch Offer will mean that primary aged pupils from Year 3 and above will now receive a free lunch in term time. You will not need to do anything to access this offer, but if you are eligible for Free School Meals, and have not applied for these, you can still do this to access to food vouchers in school holidays and free activities. Find out more about the scheme on the council’s website

Providing children with nutritious meals during the school day is vital for their health and wellbeing, and the council’s new online system makes applying for Free School Meals quicker and easier than ever.

 

If you receive benefits and your child is in Reception, Years 1, 2, 3,4 5 or 6, please apply Free School Meals through the council’s system. Our school will receive more funding – over £1,000 per pupil – which will be used for provision such as after school activities, summer clubs and extra help with reading. You will also be able to access activities and food during the school holidays.

Harrison Catering Services

Harrison Catering Services was awarded the contract to prepare meals for St. Vincent’s  and a cluster of local schools from April 2020. The official launch has been delayed  due to the current circumstances and will take place as soon as it is safe to do so. However we have been taking part in different promotional events.

 

From September 2020 we have once again been providing hot meals for pupils.

Harrison Catering Services is delighted to provide the catering for your school. Since its founding in 1994, Harrison has always been about quality fresh food prepared on-site and served by people who love what they do.
Harrison understands that what students eat affects their health and their ability to learn and perform in the classroom and on the field. Our catering team provides nutritious, balanced meals, and we work to educate the students on how to make healthier food choices. Our goal is to instil a love and understanding of fresh, healthy food at a young age that will positively influence them throughout life.
All Harrison staff receive training on how to prepare and serve healthier food through the company’s bespoke Eat Well Live Well© training programme and complete Smile accredited customer service training to ensure the best experience for customers. They are also encouraged and supported to
develop professionally throughout their career and the company provides many opportunities to achieve formal qualifications.
The Harrison team works closely with the school to tailor menus to the tastes and preferences of the students. It introduces further interest and excitement to menus through themed lunches and dinners ranging from holidays like Easter and Christmas to cuisines from around the world, tying these into the school curriculum whenever possible in a fun and stimulating way.
In October 2014, Harrison increased its commitment to sustainability and reducing its environmental impact by introducing its new range of completely compostable branded packaging across its business. The eco packaging is plastic free, low carbon and made using renewable, sustainably sourced, natural materials (trees, corn and sugar cane) and recycled materials and emits significantly less CO2 during manufacture than conventional packaging. It is certified compostable in under 12 weeks.

Harrison has a comprehensive food allergen and intolerance process and the Catering Team work closely with students and their families to address individual dietary needs.

ParentPay is the school online payment system that lets you make secure online payments by credit and debit card. You can also pay in cash at local PayPoint stores. It can be used to make cashless payments in schools for dinner money.
