Lunchtime and Playtime

Lunchtimes and playtimes are an important part of the school day. Lunchtime is a time when the children get to socialise with their friends and enjoy sitting together whilst eating their meal. The children enjoy a variety of meals which are served by our fantastic Year 2 servers. Outside at lunchtime and playtime we have a range of activities.

The children get to play sports or traditional games in the Year 2 area. There are also table top games such as dominoes, duplo and tea sets. Each class gets a chance to play on the wooden trail on a rota basis.

School Dinners

We are very proud of the school meals we serve here at Yeadon Westfield Infant School. Our staff work incredibly hard to ensure that our children have a healthy and happy lunchtime experience, and the kitchen staff are committed to providing healthy and balanced meals which are planned and cooked by our own kitchen staff on the premises using fresh, local produce. Each day we provide a nutritionally balanced meal as well as a vegetarian/ Halal option where required.  All food allergies are catered for.   The children are encouraged to eat or try new things but they are not forced to eat things they do not like.

Our ethos of working together is very much in evidence at lunchtime. We promote a sense of responsibility amongst our older children who take it in turns to serve the other children and they take an enormous amount of pride in this role.

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.

Nursery children can have a school dinner charged at £2 per day.  Payments can be made online via the School Spider App or by logging in to the Parent's Area of the School website.  Alternatively please send cash or cheques in a clearly named envelope to the school office.  

Free School Meals

Children may be eligible for free school meals if their parents or carers receive any of the following benefits:

  • income support

  • income based Job Seeker’s Allowance

  • income based Employment and Support Allowance

  • Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190

  • the guaranteed element of the State Pension Credit

  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit

  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • Universal Credit with an annual income of less than £7,400

If you’re on benefits and your child is entitled to universal infant free school meals anyway or brings a packed lunch, it’s still important to register for a free school meal to ensure school doesn’t miss out on funding called pupil premium.

To find out if you are eligible call Leeds Welfare and Benefits Service on 0113 222 4404 or visit

Packed Lunches

The vast majority of our children enjoy our healthy school dinners. Some parents choose to send their children with packed lunches. In order to support parents in providing a healthy packed lunch, we have developed some Packed Lunch Guidance. We have followed government guidelines and feel that it offers a sensible and manageable approach. If you would like to discuss packed lunches further please do not hesitate to get in touch.

If you would like your child to go home for dinner, please make arrangement with the school office.

If you wish to change dinner arrangements, one week’s notice must be given in writing.
