School lunches are cooked fresh daily at Wirksworth Junior School to the Derbyshire menu by our Catering Team. Meals are exported the short distance to Wirksworth Church of England School. Children are encouraged to try new things on the menu - there's always a variety of options to choose from. Lunchtimes are social occasions, and provide opportunities for learning too.
We are an active school, and Midday Supervisors encourage games, imaginative play and skills development sessions such as Derbyshire Challenge.
School lunches are provided free of charge to all infant children under the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) policy. We will assume all children will have a school meal unless the parent/carer lets the school know. Special diets can be catered for (doctor's letter required), as well as vegetarian/vegan preferences.
