At St Mary and All Saints Primary School, we understand just how important it is for young people to have a healthy and balanced diet. That is why our school dinner menu is filled with a variety of nutritious, high-quality meals. We cater for a variety of tastes, with a diverse range of options available every week, including vegetarian dishes.
Our school catering service is delivered by Chartwells, our school meals provider. All meals are 95% fresh, with food sourced locally with a high proportion of organic products. There is a simple payment processes and the ability for your children to order their meals electronically direct from the classroom.

Eligible for Free School Meals?
If you are in receipt of income support, income based job seekers allowance or some other credits and allowances, your child is entitled to receive a free school meal. The process is very straightforward.
Please register as the school receives additional resources based on the number of children eligible for free meals, which is to be spent specifically to help eligible children.
We have a Healthy School Policy and as such ask that packed lunches reflect this ethos. Therefore, please do not include fizzy or soft sugary drinks (water, milk or pure juices preferred) or sweets/chocolate based snacks in your child’s lunch box and think again before including salty snacks. Please also do not include nuts (or Peanut Butter) in your child’s lunch box as some school children have nut allergies.
Pupils are entitled to free milk up to their fifth birthday. If you wish to continue after your child’s 5th birthday, you may register and pay for the milk through Cool Milk.
