We are very proud of our excellent range of healthy and nutritious school lunches. St. Pauls Kitchen is provided ‘in house’ and provides three choices of hot main meal daily directly for the school and not by an external catering company. This allows us to choose our own menus and suppliers. We cook from scratch, making all of our own stews, casseroles, cakes and puddings. All meals are prepared freshly on the day according to what the children have chosen in the morning. A healthy salad bar and delicious puddings are always available. We have some wonderful local suppliers:
All children in Reception and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school dinner each lunchtime. You will be sent home a termly menu, which can be downloaded from our website as well, to help your child choose what food they would like each day. Currently we provide about 150 meals Monday-Thursday and 180 meals on a Friday!
Our standards – We follow the guidelines set by ‘The school food plan’. You can find these at www.schoolfoodplan.com and also some of our recipes such as the very popular chicken, lentil and butternut squash curry.
If you have any allergy concerns and wish to speak to a member of our catering team, please let the office know and someone will contact you. We encourage our children to enjoy their dining experience and we like to reward good manners. Each fortnight three children are chosen to sit at a special table and they chose a dinner guest and their meals are brought to them.
