Our school meals are provided by Hertfordshire Catering and at Oak View, we offer the Pupil Choice Plus Menu which gives the children the choice of a hot meal (meat or vegetarian), jacket potato or cold lunch option each day.

The cost of a two course school meal is £3.30 per day for a Junior age pupil. School meals are free of charge for all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

We use the SchoolGrid system to order and pay for school meals.  Please find more information about this on our Online Payments Page

Following a recent food hygiene inspection, we are proud to confirm that our school kitchen has again been given a 5* Rating, for their continuing excellent high standards.

Our menu can be found by searching for Oak View on the HCL Menu page.

Children of families receiving certain benefits could be entitled to free school meals and other education benefits.

My child needs a Special Diet menu

HCL offers specifically adapted menus in line with the mainstream offer for selected food allergies, intolerances and some cultural choices. There is an online application service that simplifies applying for a Special Diet Menu.  This is the required process for all new applications for special menus.

To ensure that food groups are not withdrawn from pupils’ diets without medical supervision and to also ensure that we have a full understanding of the medical implications, applications for special diets for medical reasons can only be made with supporting evidence from a GP, hospital consultant or dietitian. If you do not hold medical evidence there is a form that can be downloaded that can be taken to a GP for them to stamp and sign.

The application usually takes about ten minutes to complete and can be accessed using this link:
