Cooked school meals are available every day, and are free to all Reception, Y1 and Y2 children. All meals are cooked on the premises and are provided by Dudley Catering Services. Children can chose from a selection of items, including fish, vegetarian and halal options. The cost is currently set at £2.40 per day. Dinner money should be brought in daily or weekly in an envelope clearly marked with the child's name. Water is freely available to drink with their meal. Key Stage 2 pupils whose parents are in receipt of Income Support or Job seekers' Allowance (Income Based) are entitled to free school meals. Please contact the school if you think you may be eligible for free school meals, or for more information about the menu.

Children may bring a packed lunch any day of the week.
It is essential that the following rules apply to minimise problems to children staying at school and bringing a packed lunch:
- Sandwiches must be brought into school in a NAMED lunchbox and put into the designated lunch box holder
- Children must bring leak-proof containers for drinks - no glass containers or fizzy drinks
At Rufford, we strive to be a Healthy School, so we encourage parents to provide healthy lunches and tuck. Children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 have free fruit every day, and we provide a healthy tuck shop at break for the older children.
Children also have the opportunity to drink water throughout the day; they may bring a named water bottle or use the fountain.
