Southfield Junior School


School meals

The children’s school dinners are cooked off-site by the catering staff of Highworth Warneford School. At Southfield, lunches are staggered so that everyone has enough space to eat and socialise with friends.

School dinners are paid for through a cashless payment system called Parent Pay. Please speak to a member of our school office team for further details if you have any questions.

Is your child eligible for Free School Meals?

Parents / carers, your child(ren) can have free school meals if you get any of the benefits listed on the Swindon Council page (link below) by completing a short online form, also using the link below.  Scroll down to the 'Children from Year 3' section and click the orange 'Apply for free school meals' button. 

OR Visit the school office for support with a paper copy.

Families are asked to choose between five options for their child’s school dinner:

  • Option A: A hot school dinner (meat)
  • Option B: A hot school dinner (vegetarian)
  • Option C: A hot school dinner (jacket potato)
  • Option D: A hot school dinner (pasta pot)
  • Option E: Home packed lunch


The meals are of an excellent quality and are varied. Should children have any professionally recognised intolerances or allergies, we are able to work with the Catering Manager to provide a special lunch which meets individual medical needs.
