School Meals at St Joseph's
Our school meals are provided by Twelve15.
We are fortunate that our school dinners are prepared freshly on the premises. The two-course meals provided are nutritionally balanced and there is a menu which is updated regularly to provide a fantastic choice of food. If you would like a copy of the most current menu please contact the school office.
Children in Early Years Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free meal each day under the Government's 'Universal Infant Free School Meal' Scheme.
For children in Years 3 to 6 the cost of a school meal is £2.60 per day.
If you are in receipt of income support, tax credits or working tax credits and are eligible for free school meals please contact the school office for an application form or download the form from our Useful Forms page. All information will be dealt with in confidence.
Children may bring in a packed lunch if preferred. Packed lunches, in keeping with our 'Healthy Schools' campaign, should also be nutritionally balanced, and must not contain sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks.
Fruit/vegetables are allowed for mid-morning snacks.
All snacks or packed lunches must be NUT, ORANGE & LEMON FREE.
As the school currently has persons with life threatening allergies we have to ask that NO Nuts, Oranges or Lemons or anything containing these items are brought into school. Children can enjoy these foods at home but please ensure they are not brought onto the premises. We thank you for your help and support in ensuring the safety of all in our community.
If your child requires a special diet (e.g. due to allergies, religious or ethical reasons etc), please fill in the Twelve15 Special Diet Request online form. From 1st November 2021, following the implementation of Natasha's Law, the kitchen staff will not be able to cater for a child with special dietary needs without submitting this form. Please contact the school office for a menu if your child has any special dietary needs.
