School Meals​​

Parent Pay

Our school meals are provided by ABM - an independent fresh-food catering contractor.  ABM are not just our caterers but part of our vision, fuelling young minds and encouraging children to flourish. 

Meals are prepared on site using fresh, healthy ingredients to ensure children are well fed with a balanced and nutritious meal. ABM source their produce through a community of responsible local suppliers, farmers and growers, who share the same genuine passion for great food as ABM and the school do.

 ABM say, 'Grow is our primary school branding. As well as creating a safe and interactive environment, our wholesome and nutritious food guarantees full tummies!

Our Development Chef and in-house Nutritionist have created Food to Fuel; with menus designed to meet the needs of every school, featuring familiar dishes with a hint of international flavours. We use fresh seasonal produce, prepared and cooked on-site by our experienced, well-trained team.

Our mission is to promote well-being and empower children to make well informed decisions to help them later on in life. We provide our teams with guidance, training and the resources to support student’s nutritional knowledge and needs.

Grow actively promote a healthy lifestyle with familiar food, not forgetting throw in some fun for good measure.'

Children in EYFS and Key Stage One are entitled to free school meals through the Government's universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) scheme. Otherwise, children's meals cost just £2.30 per day (£2.00 in Little Saints preschool) and we ask parents to complete a meal selection for their child after consulting the menu provided.

We regularly monitor the quality of meals provided to ensure we are receiving value for money.  Your opinions about the provision are important so please let us know what you think - you can e-mail the school office or look out for surveys sent home with the children.
