St Nicolas

Church of England Primary School, Abingdon


The school kitchen offers an excellent choice of freshly prepared, nutritious, varied hot and cold meals every day. Children are supervised throughout the lunch break by our Teaching Assistant team with help available to anyone needing it. Current prices of meals are available from the school office. We ask parents to pay for meals in advance termly, half-termly or weekly, and to order meals on a Monday for the rest of that week.
We also make provision for children to bring a packed lunch to school. The older children eat these together in their classrooms whilst the younger children eat in the school hall for an inclusive and more sociable meal time with help available for opening of packages etc. 


If your child has a dietary requirement please let the school office know by completing the Special Diets Referral form below, this information will then be passed on to the  school kitchen - thank you.
