School Meals

St Mary and St Benedict Catholic Primary School is committed to ensuring that all pupils have a healthy lunch. We work closely with our caterers AiP to ensure that menus meet strict nutritional standards and are tasty and varied. Under the Government's Universal Infant School Meals scheme all pupils in Reception to Year 2 receive a free school meal, either a hot meal or a packed lunch if you would prefer this. Other pupils may receive a means tested free school meal, or you may pay. The cost of a meal is £2.30 per day from 1st September 2022, and is paid via Parent Pay (either at Paypoint or online - look under 'Useful Links'). Please call into the Office and we will be pleased to help you.
