School Meals

Our hot meals are freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen at Great Oldbury Primary Academy by staff from Alliance in Partnership (AIP).

A large hall provides a space for children to enjoy healthy food with their friends.

Meals are charged at the rate of £2.30 a day and can be paid for using Arbor only. Meal choices are made at home where parents can support their child(ren) in choosing an option they want.  

There is a choice of four menu options daily including a healthy packed lunch.  These menus roll on a three-weekly rota.  From time to time, AIP offer special themed menus which will be shared with parents in advance.  Alternative to AIP's meals, a healthy packed lunch can be brought in from home. We ask that children do not bring fizzy drinks, sweets or chocolate to school. We are a healthy school and promote a balanced diet for all our pupils.   




Currently, under the Government's Universal Free School Meals offer, infant children (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) are entitled to a free lunch.  This Universal Free School Meal is different to qualifying for free school meals through the Pupil Premium Grant.   Families receiving income based support or Universal Credit can qualify for free school meals throughout all age groups.  See our Pupil Premium page for more information.


If your child has a food allergy or intolerance please let us know at the School Office where we will ask you to complete a Health Care Plan.

In addition to this, you will also need to contact AIP directly to inform them of your wish for your child to have hot dinners which follow a special diet.  You can do this by calling 0121 420 3030 or email You can also complete the allergen information form below and attach it to your email.
