The provider of lunches at Hawley is Caterlink. Healthy and nutritious meals are prepared and served with ethically sourced meat and fish, and locally and regionally sourced fruit and vegetables. All meals are freshly cooked daily, by our school cook, who is skilled in catering for a range of dietary needs.
The government currently funds Universal Free Infant School Meals for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. For all other children the daily charge is £2.18. Free School Meals are available to children whose parents are in receipt of the following benefits:

In April 2017, Hawley became one of Caterlink’s ‘adopted schools’. This scheme enables the school to work closely with a member of the company’s catering team who makes regular visit to the school. ‘Chef Jamie’ visits every half term. He leads assemblies and workshops, speaks to the children about food, nutrition, and making healthy choices and he also cooks with them.
As of April 1st 2020 meal prices will change from £2.18 per day to £2.22. (£11.10 per week.)
