School Meals

The Bilingual Primary School is currently offering an invitation to tender for catering services. For more information on this process, please see the Vacancies page on our website.

From January 2020 the school's catering provisions changed. Zebedees is supplying our meals until the end of the Summer term, 2020. They provide a wide range of nutritious meat, fish and vegetarian choices, with cultural dishes featured alongside established favourites and regional specialities.

Menus operate on a 3-weekly cycle and are changed twice a year, to ensure variety and a range of seasonal ingredients. Please see the menu details below.

The Zebedees social media pages are kept up to date with photos and recipe ideas, so parents can see the food being prepared and see exactly what goes into the dishes.

Please see the allergen information, or visit  https://zebedees.co.uk

Payment Information

Payments for school meals will only be accepted through our Parentmail payment system. 

You will receive a notification in the Parentmail app to show the payment due and the due date each ½ term. Payments are ½ termly in advance and due on the first day of each ½ term (apart from Term 1 which is due on 01/09/2019 due to the new system and the need to produce numbers for the kitchen). Once you receive the notification you can navigate to the payment area and pay for your meal.

Thank you for supporting our growing school.

If you believe you meet the above criteria, you can apply for free school meals by contacting Brighton & Hove Council via their website: 


Pease note: the school cannot process free school meals applications, so you will have to apply directly the council. Once we receive notification from the council, we will contact you to confirm that your son/daughter has been set up for free meals at BPS.
