Food at Bathwick St Mary Church School

Our delicious menu

Our children are thoroughly enjoying the tasty hot school meals provided by our amazing kitchen team. The menu meets and exceeds all the food standards we are working on, with as much locally sourced fresh produce as possible.  You can find this term’s menu here:

All school meals should be booked using ParentPay. If your child is in KS2 and you pay for school meals, all payment for school meals should be made using ParentPay. 

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.

Free school meals

Parents who think that their child may be eligible for free school meals, please contact the School Office who can help further. Additional funding is allocated to the school for any child entitled to free school meals – regardless of whether they take up the offer of not.

Free school milk

Children in Reception class are offered free milk every day until their fifth birthday. Please ask your class teacher for advice if your child is dairy intolerant.


Only fruit or vegetable snacks are permitted.

KS1 (Infants) Breaks: Children may bring their prepared fruit or vegetables in a small, named plastic container that they can collect as they go out to play. During the final afternoon session, children are given a piece of fruit or vegetable as part of the ‘Healthy Schools Fruit and Vegetable’ scheme, for which there is no charge in KS1.

KS2 (Juniors) Breaks: Children may keep a piece of fruit in their own bags on their pegs.

Water is readily available for children during the day. All children should bring a water bottle to school each day, but children can also use the water fountains. 

Important allergy advice

Bathwick St. Mary Church School is a nut-free and sesame-free zone as we have a number of children in the school with a serious allergy to nuts and/or sesame.

We need to ensure that this remains a high priority for us all. If you have any questions or you spot any potential dangers or situations we may have overlooked, please contact the School Office on 01225 465654. We are seeking everyone’s cooperation in ensuring that our school will remain nut–free and sesame-free and generally alert to possible allergies. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

To cover most eventualities, please remember:

  • Do not bring into school any obviously nutty food (eg. packets of nuts/peanut butter sandwiches/Tracker bars) or any food obviously containing sesame. This also applies to parents bringing food items before/after school – as well as packed lunches and class parties.

  • Children who wish to bring in birthday treats will need to check with the class teachers very carefully.
