At lunchtime our students eat lunch together in our hall. During the warmer weather pupils are given the choice to eat their packed lunches outside and in the summer term can order a packed-lunch option from the kitchen for this purpose.
Our School lunches are supplied by catering provider HC3S.
“With over 30 years of school catering experience, our successful ethos is to provide healthy, local, responsible sourced food that children love. Our tasty, freshly cooked, nutritious dishes help your children flourish and reach their potential. As part of a balanced diet, our lunches provide a third of a child’s daily calorie intake, to aid concentration levels and give them energy to focus and to play.” - HC3S catering company
We operate an online payment system for lunches, to login please click here.
The cost of school meals are £3.00 per day, and payment must be made in advance on the first day of each school week. Alternatively, monthly or half-termly payments may be made in advance by cash or cheque (made payable to Sun Hill Junior School). We also have the facility to pay securely online on your child’s scopay account using a credit or debit card – please enquire at the school office.
In accordance with our debt recovery policy, please note that if payment is more than 5 days overdue the school reserves the right to refuse your child a school meal. In this instance you should provide your child with a packed lunch until you have paid in full.
Menus are changed termly and rotate on a 3 week basis and are priced at £3.00 a day (as of April 2023). This includes a main meal along with additional bread and salad which is available daily. A selection of alternative desserts (bananas, apples, oranges, yoghurts, rice pots, fruit pots, cheeses, fruit juices and low-sugar desserts) are also available each day.
If you feel your child may be entitled to a free school meal then please contact the school office or for more information visit: https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/freeschoolmeals/juniorsecondary

Medical Special Diets Registration
Does your child need a medical special diet to eat lunch at school? If so, you need to create an account to register your child for a medical special diet. Once you have created your account, HC3S will review your medical evidence with an NHS dietician in order to devise an adapted menu for your child's school lunch.
Living with allergies comes with its own set of rules so when it comes to food, as education caterers, HC3S want to make this as easy as possible for you as a family. HC3S staff are trained in food safety and regularly update their skills on allergens.
More details can be found here.
Alternatively, children are welcome to bring a packed lunch. These should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. We politely ask that crisps, sweets and chocolate biscuits are limited in lunchboxes and encourage morning snacks to be fruit or an alternative healthy option.
No nut, nutspread, chocolate nut spread or nutbased items please
