Please note that if your child has a food allergy you must inform the school in writing.

Students are expected to stay on the school premises over the lunch periodIf you wish to drop off a packed lunch for your child, please do so via main reception.  Please note that the school does not allow fast food meals, (for example, McDonalds), to be brought into school by friends/relatives for students.

The school needs to have a record of students' lunchtime arrangements and a student questionnaire, issued to all parents in September, serves as the schools official  record. In the event of any changes, the school must be informed in writing.

North Kesteven School provides a number of local primary schools with fresh, nutritious meals cooked on our premises and delivered by van directly to the primary school.  A week in advance staff at the primary school receive a number of menu choices which they return, by a given date to NKS.  The meals are then delivered by our friendly staff directly to them in time for their lunch break.  All empty and unwashed containers, plates and cutlery are then returned to NKS and this service is included in the cost. 

For more information about how we can provide an excellent service to your primary school at a competitive rate please telephone 01522 881010 and speak with our Restaurant Manager, Mrs M Grice.
