School Lunches & Cool Milk Scheme


School dinners represent the social element of the school environment where our children learn table manners and etiquette.

Riverview has a kitchen on site where fresh meals are prepared and cooked daily by staff from Surrey Commercial Services. Please click on the link below to view the menus.

From September 2020 school dinners cost £12.00 a week (£2.40 per day). Dinner money should be paid in advance via the ParentMail app.

School dinners are served in the dining hall where a daily menu is placed at the serving hatch.


Some teachers and children suffer from nut allergies so NO products containing nuts should be brought to school.


If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals a form is available from the school office. Once the form has been returned to the school a check on eligibility will be made and children will not be placed on the free meals register until your entitlement has been confirmed. Parents are asked to ensure that any forms requested are returned promptly. It is important that the school office is notified of any changes to your financial circumstances as soon as possible as this may effect your eligibility to receive a free school meal. 

From September 2014 all Reception and KS1 pupils are eligible for free school meals. However, if you are in receipt of any benefit, please still complete and return your form as this could enable you to receive financial assistance with other activities such as school trips or clubs.


If your child has any special dietary needs due to allergies or religion, please ensure you complete the form and return to the school office. Surrey Commercial Services require us to send the form to anyone with special dietary needs on a termly basis to ensure our records are up to date.


Packed lunches are eaten under the supervision of a lunchtime supervisor. Packed lunches should be brought in a lunch box clearly marked with your child’s name. The food provided should be simple and easily eaten and we would ask that you adhere to our promotion of a Food in Schools Policy – no fizzy or high energy drinks allowed and no sweets.


If your child wants to change from school dinners to packed lunches (or vice versa) the school office will require one week’s notice.
