We offer a full meal plan for all children who wish to have a school dinner. All children eat their lunch in the school hall with their year group.
Our school cook is Mrs. G. Frankland and she was appointed in May 2021. Mrs Frankland works hard and is excited to work with parents and Leeds Catering to make our offer one that appeals to all children and complies with the latest food standard guidance.
Please find the menu below for September 2023
If you think you might be entitled to free school meals, please see Ms MacPherson in the school office.
National School Meals Week 2023
National School Meals Week is the one week in the year when we celebrate all that is great about today’s school food. We have made the decision to postpone the original date meaning there is still time for your child to book their delicious school meals.
Mrs Frankland and Mrs Collins have worked together, with the food ambassadors) to create an exciting and varied menu for the week! We have listened to the views of the children, expressed in a recent food survey conducted in school, and have incorporated their ideas into a nutritious, balanced and appetising menu!
This year our focus at St Mary’s will be on developing food confidence, educating our children further about the importance of a balanced diet and embedding an understanding about ‘food for fuel’ and the benefits of good nutrition for learning!
