Weekly Menu

Richmond House School is committed to encouraging healthy eating and places great emphasis on providing pupils  with a well balanced diet in line with the Government’s compulsory nutritional standards for school lunches.

Lunch is freshly prepared daily in the School kitchen by Mrs Dean, our experienced School Catering Manager, and her team, and is served in the dining room. Mrs Dean has been working at Richmond House School for over 23 years, and many of our former pupils and staff have great memories of her cooking especially her rice pudding and marble cake!

We are proud to have a five star food hygiene rating from Leeds City Council. Our menu changes weekly in a five week cycle. All of our meals aim to give children a varied and balanced diet and a vegetarian alternative is available every day as well as a choice of pasta or jacket potato dishes, cold meats, a help-yourself salad bar, fruit and yoghurt.

Lunchtime at Richmond House School is a social occasion where children and staff eat together, have good food and enjoy each other’s company.

Children are required to bring in a healthy snack for break-time, preferably a price of fruit. They are also expected to have a school water bottle and are encouraged to regularly drink water throughout the day. Breakfast is served in Pre school care, with snacks and a light tea provided in After school care.
