Parents of children at Athersley North Primary School have been told the school will be without facilities to make hot school meals for at least the first two weeks of term.
Headteacher Margaret Newcombe wrote to parents after discovering the principal contractor had run into problems caused by delays in equipment being delivered.
Mrs Newcombe told parents: "We have arranged for all children who usually eat their lunch in school to receive a free sandwich lunch during the time we are without a kitchen.
"This means free lunches will be provided for all children in school who usually have a school dinner, either free or paid, for the period of the kitchen work."
