Headfield CE Junior School

School Lunch


School meals are provided for our children by Kirklees School Meals Service. Alternatively, children can bring a healthy packed lunch to school and a very small number of our pupils go home for their lunch. For further information on how to pay for school dinners please click the ParentPay tab on our website.


  • We serve a two course meal at a set price of £2.30 each day from September 2020, £11.50 per week.
  • School meals are freshly prepared, on the school site, using high quality, locally sourced food.


If your child has a special dietary requirement or has an allergy to any food items, please consult with our office team who will liaise with the school's kitchen supervisor to ensure your child is catered for. Our daily menus cater for both vegetarians and Halal.


Kirklees Catering offer a selection of suggested themed lunches to all primary schools. Theme subjects are chosen around the curriculum and culture, such as the Chinese New Year and during these events a special menu is designed which is fun and encourages the children to try new foods not normally on the menu.
