Hot Lunch

Dolphin School is delighted to offer a daily hot lunch for children in Reception to Year 8.  We have a three week menu from which you can choose a delicious meat/fish option or a vegetarian/vegan option each day. Please see our sample menus below. 

Hot lunch can be booked through our Hot Lunch ordering portal ( to choose the days and options you require. Our menu runs from Wednesday to Tuesday. The deadline for orders is Tuesday of the previous week.  i.e. Hot lunches for 8 - 14 September must be ordered by Monday 30 August.  

Our hot lunch supplier, Apetito is experiencing staff shortages due to COVID. This means that they may sometimes be unable to supply the meals and deserts that are listed on our menu. They will always provide us with alternatives and we hope for your understanding that this is beyond the School's control.


You will receive a half-termly invoice for your hot lunch.   The cost of the lunch and dessert is:

* £4.10 Standard: Reception to Year 2

* £4.60 Large: Year 3 to Year 8

Please note that unbooked hot lunch will be charged at £10 as these will not have been ordered and will require further preparation. The meals served for unbooked lunches may not be the meals on offer for the day.

For those children with food allergies,a list of the allergens contained in each meal can be found here.
