Food at Bathwick St Mary Primary School
We recognise the importance of nutritious meals for happy, healthy learners, and our team of dedicated cooks, together with the School Nutrition Action Group (SNAG), work hard to offer a healthy and appetising selection of school meals.
An important note about allergies
Because we have several children with serious nut allergies, Bathwick St Mary’s is a nut-free zone. As food allergies and general allergies become more prevalent, we do ask parents and carers to be extra cautious when bringing in food or other items from home. If you are in any doubt, please see the class teacher in the first instance. There is more information on this in our Allergies section.

School lunches survey results: the headlines
‘Eating with friends’ and ‘Choosing my own food’ were the two main things that the children said they liked the most about the school dinner experience. In 2017, the School Council introduced ‘Free Choice Friday’ where one Friday per term, children in Juniors could choose where they sat at lunchtimes. This proved to be a real hit! In addition, we held a number of ‘picnic lunches’ in the summer term which were enjoyed by all.
