The current cost of a school meal is £2.20  for main course and desert.

Our school meals are prepared and served by ISS World catering services who hold the Soil Association Food for Life’s Gold Catering Mark. Food on the menus is freshly prepared from scratch each day using a selection of sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. The school menus include a selection of organic products, including bread, yoghurts and milk, as well as a range of locally sourced, seasonal produce. In addition, all of the eggs are free range and all of the meat is Farm Assured/Red Tractor certified. Please visit their website here.

At Lunchtime children can either have school meals or bring a packed lunch from home.

On no occasion must any foodstuff from home contain nuts or any nut products. We are a nut free school.

Please email the school requesting to start or stop school lunches ( A week’s notice is required.

St Mary’s achieved the Healthy School Award in 2003 for encouraging a healthy lifestyle. At break time we provide fresh fruit for younger children (at the Infant site) and older children are also encouraged to snack on fruit or to have a juice drink brought in from home. Again, no nuts or nut products are allowed.

In school children are encouraged to drink water and to have their own individual bottle readily available. Good quality water bottles can be purchased from the school office.
