School Meals

At St. Joseph’s, we believe that only the best is good enough!

Cook Judy and her team freshly prepare all our school meals on site, using locally sourced natural produce. By using our own butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer, we know exactly what our children are eating… and there is nothing better than a home cooked meal at lunchtime!!!
Our children love the friendly social atmosphere of eating and enjoying their food with their friends. Assisted by our wonderful lunchtime staff, the children are encouraged to try new foods. Check our Newsletters for when you can come and join your child on one of our Family Lunch days and see for yourself!

Should you have any questions about our school dinners please contact Mrs Derry who will be happy to assist.

Our delicious, nutritious school meals, comprising of a Main, Dessert and Drink can be purchased for an amazing £2.30!*

*KS1 children currently enjoy a Free School Dinner (snack at break-time is not included) as part of the Universal Infant Free School Meals program.

We can also provide a break-time snack of Toast - 20p per slice, Milk - 25p per carton, Jubbly 40p each. Debited from your child's Parentpay account weekly.

Children are asked daily what choice of meal they would like from our weekly menu (please see below), so you can discuss with your child and help them make wise choices. 

All snack and dinner money is payable in advance via Parentpay, and we request that you check your child's account regularly to prevent any deficit or refusal.



In addition to our weekly menu, Cook Judy also arranges to cook a special meal to celebrate each Year Groups topic subjects, check out the Notice Board by the school gate or the Newsletter for more information. These lunches are particularly popular with our children.
