Hot Meals

At Aldingbourne School, you can choose for your child to bring a packed lunch to school or have a hot lunch in our 1950s diner! 

We are proud to work with Chartwells for your children’s hot meals. Chartwells believe that the key to fuelling young minds comes from understanding both what they need and what they enjoy, which is why they develop nutritious and delicious food that pupils love, alongside helping to ensure a healthy body and mind. Their passionate culinary experts work closely with us to ensure every child receives healthy food, perfectly suited to meet their needs and dietary requirements.

The current meal price is £2.97 for juiniors. Infants and children who are eligiable for Free School Meals do not have to pay. 

How to order: Log on at to choose and book your meals. Orders need to be placed by midnight Thursday, ten days ahead of the week required. For example, meals for the week starting Monday 12th would have an order deadline of Thursday 1st.
