School Meals At Holly Lodge
Children at Holly Lodge have the choice to have either hot school meals or bring in a packed lunch. If you wish, they may have a combination of the two. At school we have an excellent kitchen that provides nourishing, healthy meals at a cost of £2.45 per day. Our school lunch provider is Twelve15. (previously known as Surrey Commercial Services)
The document below gives details of the current menu.
We are pleased to be able to offer the children a choice of hot lunches. These meals will mainly follow the published school meal lunches. In addition to the published meal choices, there will also be an option of a jacket potato, the topping for this will change on a daily basis. The meals available, will be published on our website (see pdf link above) and will be on display on the door to reception to enable you to see what your child will be having on a weekly basis. The main option which is primarily, though not exclusively, meat based will be the “red” option, there will be a daily vegetarian option which will be “green” and the jacket potato option will be “yellow”. (Please note that due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the menus have been temporarily amended. We are not able to offer the the "yellow" jacket potato option at present)
Children are allowed to choose their option on a daily basis. At morning registration, all children will be advised what the meal choices are for that day and will be provided with a coloured wristband to reflect their choice. At lunchtime, they return the band when they are given their food. If you do happen to find that your child has come home with a wrist band, please could you hand it in to the office.
We ask that the children make healthy choices with their packed lunch so please do not include chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks. As we have children with nut allergies we also ask that no nut products be included or sandwich fillings, for example peanut butter or chocolate spread.

Special Dietary Requirements
If your child has ANY special dietary requirements, you MUST complete the following actions
(even if they normally bring a packed lunch to school)
School dinners are provided at Holly Lodge by external caterers Twelve15. The information you provide to Twelve15 will be for their kitchen use only, so you must complete BOTH forms if your child has a special dietary need.
Does this Apply to My Child?"
You MUST complete two forms if you answer "Yes" to any of the following:
• Your child has a food intolerance or allergy to one of the following recognised food allergens: celery, crustaceans, dairy, egg, fish, gluten, lupin, molluscs, mustard, nut, peanuts, sesame, soya, sulphites.
• Your child is Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Vegan or follows a Pork or Beef free diet
• Your child is following a Cultural or Religious diet
I answered yes – What do I need to do?
• Complete the Twelve15 online form (https://itstwelve15.co.uk/allergies/)
• Complete and return the Holly Lodge Special Dietary Request Form (download from this page or paper copies available from the office)
During class time, food tastings and other events where food may be offered occur so it is vital that any dietary, religious or allergen needs are confirmed to us at school on our Special Diet Request Form.
The information provided to school on our Special Diet Request Form, will be shared with our Breakfast and After School Clubs.
To apply for your child to receive one of the above special diets, you must complete BOTH of the above forms. The Twelve15 application must be completed online, the Holly Lodge form will need to be printed and returned to the school office. Paper copies are available to collect from the school office.
From 1st November 2021, pupils with special dietary requirements will not be catered for unless both forms have been submitted.
