Boundary Primary School uses Lancashire County Council for School meals.
Lancashire Schools Catering service has been awarded the prestigious Catering Mark in recognition of the fresh and healthy meals it serves in Schools.
Over 80% of meals are freshly prepared from unprocessed ingredients and meals contain no undesirable food additives or Trans fats.
We attach great importance to the provision of meals in our school and ensure that our meals are always healthy and balanced.
All menus are planned to comply with School Food Standards and all new dishes are tested by children. Our meat is Red Tractor Farm Assured, our fish is MSC certified and our eggs are free-range Lion brand. They are a champion of local food suppliers including yoghurts from Longridge, free range eggs from Leyland and beef, poultry and seasonal fresh vegetables from across Lancashire.
LCS use a number of organic products throughout our menus. There is always fresh fruit and salad, bread and locally produced yoghurt available daily.
To make the most of seasonal produce we change our menus a minimum of twice a year.
Special diets can be provided for religious reasons and medical requirements.
We have a dedicated team, who work hard to produce a wide variety of meals for both students and staff and all of our food is cooked freshly each day.
All children are supervised at lunchtimes by our staff.
School meal options are as follows:-
- Have a school lunch – Cooked meals are available and served in the dining hall
- Bring a packed lunch – Children may bring their own packed lunch, which is also eaten in the dining hall.
We actively encourage healthy eating and ask you to consider this when preparing your child’s lunch.
Sweets are not allowed and chocolate should be limited to one small bar or biscuit.
Nuts, or products containing nut traces, are not allowed as we have pupils with severe allergies.
Most chocolate spreads contain nut traces, and therefore it is easier to say that none are allowed.
Lunch should be packed in a lunchbox, which is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Drinks should be brought in a plastic flask or other unbreakable containers for safety reasons, again clearly marked.
Please do not send canned drinks, fizzy or any hot drinks as these will be confiscated.
All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are offered a free school meal each day, unless you choose to opt out.
From Years 3-6 the cost of a school meal is £2.35 and is charged daily to your ParentPay account. This includes a choice of 3 meals per day, a drink and a pudding.

Applying for free School Meals means that school may receive extra funding even if your child already has a universal free school meal or a packed lunch.
