School Meals

At St. Malachy's we pride ourselves on the excellent standard of school meals we produce each day whilst meeting the Government’s guidelines on menu setting. Nutrition and a healthy balance are key factors in our menu development. Alongside this, ensuring the children enjoy their meals whilst balancing Government guidelines, personal preferences and seasonal options is a challenge we rise to.

We hope that all parents will agree that our school meals service is something we should value very highly. We are constantly sourcing local and organic produce; listening to pupil and parent requests, as well as complying with government legislation.

Cost of School Meals

The cost of a school meal is £1.80 per meal for KS2 pupils. Payment is required in advance and can be made at the School Office. If sending money in with your child then please make sure this is in a clearly labelled envelope. 

School meals for KS1 are fully funded by the government.

Do you offer a vegetarian option?

There is at least one vegetarian option available daily. These are the yellow menu choices. All desserts are suitable for vegetarians.

I'm concerned about the level of sugar in the desserts?
