School Meals

Our school meals are provided by ISS Catering and are freshly prepared each day in our school kitchen. Menus are available termly via

Pupils in Reception, Year one and Year two are able to have a free hot meal at lunchtime funded by the 'Universal Infant Free School Meals' initiative. We would encourage as many pupils as possible to take up this offer and, indeed, to continue to have a hot meal at lunchtime as they progress up the school.  Ordering hot meals can be done either online at up to midnight on the day before you would like your child to have a meal. If your child has any food allergies, intolerances or requires a special diet for any other medical reason then the Special Diet Referral Form (attached below) needs to be completed and returned to ISS. Please also see additional information below from ISS regarding Special Diets and Healthy Eating.

At St Mary's we encourage children to bring a healthy balanced packed lunch if you do not choose to order a catered meal for your child. Here are some links with suggestions and tips for making healthy and varied packed lunches for your children:
