School Meals and Milk
We have an excellent catering team who provide high quality food. There is always a vegetarian selection and salad bar with an emphasis on healthy eating.
Our cook can usually cater for special dietary needs. Parents can pay for school lunches half-termly. The exact money should be sent using Schoolgateway.
We use a ‘Pupil Choice’ menu where children are able to choose on the day from a choice of hot meals. Please find attached menu showing all the options available. If you wish your child to have school meals, priced at £2.30 per day, please follow these guidelines.
1) Decide if your child will purchase a meal:
a) 5 x days per week or
b) Wednesday roast and Friday special or
c) Friday special only
2) Pay in advance via Schoolgateway or cheque to Herts Catering Ltd. All payments must be made for a full half-term only.
Your child can, of course, continue to bring their own packed lunch into school as before. We ask that changes to your child’s meal pattern only happen half-termly.
Children are able to bring packed lunches. Please remember that peanut butter cannot be used as a sandwich filling; some of our pupils have serious allergies and this could trigger a severe reaction.
(Cans, glass bottles and fizzy drinks are also not allowed.)
Parents are asked to give two weeks notice in writing if they wish their child to change from school meals to packed lunches.
Special Dietary Requirements
Our school meals are prepared by Herts Catering ltd, who strive to ensure that all pupils are able to access them. Where there are special medical requirements, please do speak to us and we will be able to consider ways in which we can help.
All children who currently have a special Medical, or a Cultural or Religious menu preference/option, must register. Please note that when registering for a Medical Menu, you will be asked to upload evidence from a medical professional and your child’s photograph. No application can be processed without this evidence. This ensures that special menus are provided for those who really need it and not to accommodate personal preferences. A photograph will also be required when applying for a Cultural and Religious Menu.
