School Meals and Lunchtime Provision Update!

Below are a selection of photos of a typical school meal time at HGIS.  I hope these illustrate both the range and quality of food provided for children and the pleasant environment in which they eat. I would also like to reassure parents of the efforts taken to ensure the needs of individual children are met.  We operate a badge system at dinnertime, whereby the children wear a coloured badge to refelect their personal requirements:


  • Green badge                     = Vegetarian
  • Yellow badge                    = Vegetarian and fish
  • Red badge                       = Halal meat (children may still choose the vegetarian option)
  • Blue badge                       =  No dairy
  • Large yellow/orange badge = Allergies (individual needs are made explicit on the badge

Cook is aware of all children with medically acknowledged allergies in school and caters for them personally, preparing meals to suit their exact needs.
