School Lunches

StGabriel_SchoolLunches_01

Our school lunches are freshly prepared on the premises by our catering team using quality produce. We aim to make our lunches nutritious and appetising, following current food standards and recommendations.

Each day there is a choice of three meals – two of which are vegetarian. Meals are prepared and served in accordance with strict vegetarian requirements (no contamination or proximity to meat etc). Our Catering Manager, Kitchen and Welfare staff are all aware of individual dietary requests and preferences. In fact, all our vegetarian meals are prepared on different coloured plates so that children and staff alike can clearly see that the appropriate meal has been served.

Children eat lunch in the hall, sitting in their class groups. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will automatically receive a school dinner as part of the Universal Free School Meal initiative.

As part of the National Fruit Scheme, we provide free fruit or vegetables every afternoon for all infant children. Sweets are not permitted in school. We actively encourage the bringing of healthy snacks at break times for junior children and also healthy lunch box choices.

Our lunches cost £2 per day (effective January 2016).
