* If your child has any special dietary requirements, please can you inform us as soon as possible.
At Orsett Primary School our meals are provided by Thurrock Catering Services who pride themselves on offering balanced and nutritious meals at an affordable price. Our kitchen staff also work with us to ensure that the meals that are provided are of a high quality and enjoyed by all.
Our children enjoy dinner times as these are also social occasions. Once a week children who the Midday Assistants feel have been good role models during the week have the privilege of sitting at the ‘Top Table’ complete with tablecloth and flowers.
Each morning our children are able to choose which of the three main meals they wish to have and then just before lunch receive a coloured writsband denoting the meal that they have chosen. This ensures that our children have food that they will enjoy and therefore, there is also less wastage.
Thurrock catering also come into our school and work with our children to prepare and make food that is both healthy and enjoyable to ensure that our children learn at an early age how to cook simple meals.
