School Meals

School meals for the pupils at Kingsleigh Primary School are provided by Chartwells Meal Selector online –

The link below describes the process on how to register and place your hot meal orders. To order meals on the website, the cut off point is always the Sunday (midnight) a full 7 days before the week starts.

If you do not have access to the internet please contact Chartwells directly on 01202 691038 who will place your child’s meal orders on your behalf.
Even if you do not have to pay for your child’s meals you MUST register and order through Chartwells. The School office are happy to advise on ordering but we cannot accept orders through school. If you DO NOT order your child’s lunch you will need to provide a packed lunch.
When registering via the Dorset Meal Selector website:, the system will automatically default to receive important information from Chartwells relating to the meal service or meal booking reminders, please do not un-tick this box.

We recommend that you book meals for the whole term to ensure meals have been ordered without having to remember to book them on a weekly basis.
If you have any questions or require any assistance, please contact us on 01202 691038 or
