School dinners have been in and out of the news over the last few years. As parents we know that our children need a healthy breakfast and a nutritional lunch every day. We know that hungry children cannot concentrate and cannot learn, which in turn knocks confidence. Good nutrition is critical to a child’s achievement.
At King's we aim to meet or exceed the governments food and nutrition standards. We do not have vending machines filled with fizzy drinks, crisps and sweets on the premises.
We ensure that, wherever possible:
- Fresh ingredients will be used, not processed convenience food.
- Food will be baked not fried.
- Salt levels will be low.
- Ingredients will be locally sourced, free range and organic.
King's School works with Innovate to provide hot and cold food for students at breakfast, morning break and lunch time. Menus are updated termly, and rotate to ensure that students have a range of options available to them. Mrs Minall and the Dome Diner staff also offer seasonal menus, such as special Chinese New Year and Guy Fawkes options.
Please be advised that the Dome Diner is a cashless facility. If you would like more information on cashless catering, please visit the cashless catering section of our website, accessible via the 'The School' menu above. For more information about free school meals, please see our free school meals page.
To find out more about Innovate, please see their introductory letter here.

Students with dietary needs
The Dome Diner is happy to cater for students with dietary needs, such as gluten or dairy free diets. A number of the menu items linked above are available in gluten or dairy free formats, but the team do need to know in advance if students will want these so they can be prepared specially.
If your child has a gluten or dairy free diet and wishes to purchase items from the canteen, they will need to speak with Mrs Minall or one of the Dome Diner team before school or at morning break to ensure that a suitable option is prepared for them at lunch.
