Barclay Primary works with Waltham Forest Catering Services to ensure that school dinners provide a child with a healthy balanced meal.

School dinners provide students with a variety of tasty choices everyday of the week from a range of different cultures. A school dinner consists of a main course, fresh vegetables or salad, freshly baked bread and a dessert. A meal choice pattern is assigned to each child, and meals are ordered according to this pattern.
