Lunches/Healthy Schools

School Dinners

We are using a system known as Gateway which is very easy to use and this offers you the flexibility to make online payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - safe in the knowledge that payments are secure and use the highest level of card security and that funds will reach the school safely.

The menu is on a 3 week rotation.  Mayville School dinners are prepared in a Halal kitchen, the food is freshly prepared and cooked on site.

For the academic year 2023/2024, the government are paying for every child from Reception to Year 6 to have a free school dinner. 

Universal school dinners apply to children in Reception to Year 6.  




School Menu - as of week commencing 13th November 2023, we are on week 3

Packed Lunches

If your child has a packed lunch, please provide a clearly labelled lunch box and put the drink in a plastic container (no glass bottles).

Mayville Primary Healthy Schools Information

At Mayville Primary School we want all children to be healthy and achieve at school and in life. We believe that by providing opportunities at school for enhancing emotional and physical health, we will improve long- term health, reduce health inequalities, increase social inclusion and raise achievement for all.

Healthy Eating

Our school has a team of kitchen staff who prepare cooked meals using healthy ingredients. Any snacks bought from home must be healthy and therefore we do not permit chocolate, sweets, food with a high sugar content or crisps. Children in Key Stage 1 are provided with fruit daily (Government free fruit scheme). We encourage parents to consider healthy options when packing lunches for their children.

We do not permit fizzy drinks, sweets or high sugar content items in lunch boxes. This rule also applies to children when on school trips. Our school operates a daily breakfast club where children can eat a healthy breakfast and participate in quiet activities from 8am. Every child is encouraged to bring a water bottle to school every day. Children have access to water throughout the day.


Physical Activity

Physical activity contributes significantly to the being healthy national outcome for children. At Mayville children are provided with a range of opportunities to be physically active including during P.E and our extensive range of extra curricular clubs such as Gymnastics, Football, Netball and Dance. They understand how physical activity can help them to be healthier and can improve and be a part of their every day life. Our school ensures that children participate in the recommended number of hours of physical activity per week.

Emotional Health and Wellbeing, including bullying

Emotional health and wellbeing contributes significantly to necessary outcomes for children: being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and economic wellbeing.

Our school’s promotion of positive emotional health and wellbeing helps children to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence and emotional resilience, and therefore their capacity to learn. This is done through carefully planned SEAL and PSHE lessons, lessons with strong SMSC links, regular Circle Time, Golden Rules, Merit Assemblies and by fostering an environment where children have various role models they feel able to talk to. The children learn about bullying and this is explicitly taught during anti-bullying week and in the SEAL theme ‘Say No To Bullying’. Children are made aware of strategies to tackle bullying and where and how to seek support if these issues affect them.
