School Meals

King Athelstan has a large hall where all the children are invited to eat their lunch. Children can bring a packed lunch from home or enjoy a healthy, freshly made hot meal, prepared in our own kitchens by our catering team WilsonJones. We are a no nut and a pork-free school. Please note, other meat options are not halal. 


"We are an independent catering company based in Surrey who specialise in catering for the education sector. Our "Simply Fresh" mantra sums up everything about our company.

We have a very simple philosophy: Fresh food, well prepared, & served with a smile." 

Please see the latest menu below. You should book meals from this menu on ParentPay, and can book weeks ahead. 

Free School meals – does your child qualify?

All children in Reception, Year 1, and Year 2 are entitled to universal free school meals automatically. For the academic year 2023-24, all children are entitled to a free lunch. Although all school lunches are free (for this year) parents/carers still need to book and select the lunch each day from the menu choice. 

If you are in receipt of benefits, it is worth applying for benefits-related free school meals as your children can access a free club, and may receive meal vouchers during school holidays. For further details, click here.

How to book – do it in advance!

  • See below for our current menu.
  • School lunches are booked via your ParentPay account.
  • Save yourself time! You can book weeks in advance.
  • Lunches must be booked by 7.00 am on the morning of the lunch at the very latest.
  • If a child has not been booked in for lunch on time, we will call and request that parents provide a packed lunch, so please make sure you have booked in advance.


If you have any questions please contact the school office at

Special Menus

We also have special menus from time to time. For example, in May 2022 we had a street-party-style lunch to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and every year there is a Chinese-themed menu for Chinese New Year. We also have special lunches for school census days in January and May.

Current Menu

This is the menu from 15th April 2024. 

Please note when booking on ParentPay the Week 1 Tuesday Meat Option reads ‘Chicken Pizza with Potato Wedges’. This is incorrect and should read Chicken in BBQ Sauce with Rice.
