Lunch Menu November 19 - March 20
Throughout the year we celebrate special days and events with exciting theme day menus and treats. (Parents are always informed in advance about any changes to the school menu on these days.)
Our school council works alongside our kitchen lead to ensure our school lunch menu is not only healthy and nutritious but that we are all enjoying our school dinners.
The OBS Wristband System
At Old Basford School we operate a wristband system for school lunches. This means that the main meals on our school menu have all been colour co-ordinated.
- We ask that all parents and carers discuss the daily menu with their child and agree which "colour" main meal they should request at morning registration.
- During the lunch period, your child will be given a Pink, Yellow or Green wristband according to their chosen main meal.
- Wristbands will then be handed to the member of kitchen staff serving lunches in exchange for the appropriate main meal. All puddings will be chosen by the child at the point of lunch time service.
- It is hoped that this system will not only help us reduce our food wastage but also help us to cater for the different dietary needs of our children.
Payments can be made by cash or cheque (payable to Old Basford School) at the school office or online using the School Gateway. If you require more information regarding online payments please see our online payments parent page on our website or ask at the school office.
Parents/carers are encouraged to prepare healthy packed lunches.

If you are in receipt of certain means tested benefits, your child could receive free school meals, milk, a school cardigan or jumper and discounts on school visits. In addition to this, our school will receive £1300 for each child who registers for Pupil Premium. This money is spent on additional teaching and extra curricular activities.
