Just as children are laying the foundations for a life of learning and rich experience, they are also taking early steps towards a healthy mind and body. This is where food plays an essential role.

Our catering providers bring the fun and excitement of food to our youngest children. Colours, textures and taste are there to be explored and enjoyed. There is always something on the menu for each child to enjoy.

Our providers supply nutritious and balanced meals with varying menus which change each term. We strive to provide tasty and nutritious meals whilst impacting the environment as little as possible.

Our kitchens minimise the use of single-use plastics in the storage, preparation and serving of food.

Drinking water is freely available and children are encouraged to bring to school a reusable bottle that can be refilled through the day.

Alongside the work we do to reduce single-use plastics across the business, we also recycle our food waste into green energy through ReFood.

What are my options?

Children may opt for school dinners, cooked daily on site or bring their own packed lunch from home.

School dinners are just £2.50 per day and can be booked in half-termly blocks. Payment is due in advance each week, on a Monday morning. Please make payments via the MCAS app. Please contact the school office for activation details and how to register. Menus will be displayed weekly in the main entrance and classrooms. Children are able to select their meal choice from a ‘cafeteria’ style set up in the school hall and timings will vary according to a rota of year group sittings across the weekly blocks.

For those bringing a packed-lunch, these should be brought to the classroom each day, in a secure and labelled lunchbox / bag. As a ‘Healthy School’, please can we ask that as well as sandwiches, any snacks are healthy ones (fruit, yoghurt etc) and that sweets and chocolate bars are avoided. Thank you!
