High Ongar Primary School

A school to which we are proud to belong.

Dinner Menu

We are very pleased that we are able to offer a hot school lunch for our children. As we do not have a kitchen ourselves, our meals are cooked at a local school and delivered to our servery for lunchtime. All meals are produced in line with government guidelines and legislation and they are tasty and nutritious. A menu is available to download so that you are able to see the menu options. The menu has a three week cycle which rotates and it changes each term, with new dishes being introduced to tempt the children. The menu week number can be found at the bottom of the newsletter every week. There is also a copy of the menu outside the school office and one in the children's classroom.


All KS1 children (Ash and Beech Classes) receive free school meals. Children in KS2 (Elm, Maple and Willow Classes) pay £2.30 for each school meal they order. We no longer accept cash or cheques, parents must pay via their Parent Pay account. Please make sure any arrears are settled promptly. Please speak to the school office if you haven't activated your account.


Children will now be able to choose between a vegetarian or meat meal and on most days a third option of a jacket potato will also be available.   Children will need to let their teacher know at registration whether they want a meat option (RED) or a vegetarian option (GREEN) or potato (BLUE).


Orders need to go to the kitchen by 9.30am and cannot ordered after this time or changed at dinner time. If your child is late into school and we have not be notified that they require a meal please make sure you send them in with a packed lunch.
