Lunch menu

All school children (Reception to Year 2) receive a free school lunch under the Government's Universal Free School Meal initiative. At Hillshott our lunches are provided by Herts Catering Limited (HCL) following their pupil choice menu. This gives children the daily option of either a 


  • Red Choice (hot meat based meal)
  • Green Choice (hot vegetarian meal)
  • Yellow Choice (cold packed lunch).


Religious, life style and medically documented dietary needs are catered for by HCL via their online registration service via the below link.


During the Autumn Term, Reception children can pre-select their meals with their parents whilst they get used to the new lunch choice routine. From Christmas onwards Reception children choose their own lunches as part of the morning register routine. Children in Years 1 and 2 make their own choice from the menu on a daily basis.


Children can bring home packed lunches if they wish. All children eat together in the school hall at lunchtime.


A copy of the latest menu is available on the website and paper copies are available in school.

From time to time special themed meals are provided and we will advise you in advance via the school newsletter.
