Catering at The Kingsley School is provided by The Brookwood Partnership; the only educational contract caterer with the top level 3 Star Food Made Good Award.
The first lunch sitting is for Preparatory School pupils, who are accompanied to the dining room by their teachers. They have a choice of a hot meat or vegetarian dish with accompaniments and/or salad and a pudding and fruit – the cost of which is included in the fees.
The youngest pre-school and Years 1 and 2 pupils eat in the dining hall “family style”, so that they can develop social skills and table manners.
Senior girls can choose from the hot menu, salad bar or a range of freshly baked filled rolls and sandwiches, fresh fruit and puddings during the second lunch sitting. A wide range of freshly prepared hot and cold snacks is also available at morning break for Senior School pupils.
Our Approach to Eating
Healthy eating is integral to our ethos of general wellbeing. Children in Prep are introduced to the concept of a healthy diet through class discussion and play, and this is fostered by encouraging thought when choosing daily snacks. We educate our pupils to identify that all foods are required, in varying amounts, within a balanced diet thus providing nutrition vital for a healthy body. Exercise and diet go hand in hand, and pupils understand the importance of food as fuel. We provide catering underpinned by the philosophy that fresh food prepared on-site, by experienced chefs educates children of all ages that a healthy diet is tasty.
