Here at St. Mary's Menston, it is important to us all that meals are produced to a very high standard ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to purchase food produced to the very best of our ability on a daily basis.
To achieve this we operate our own in-house catering service using fresh locally sourced produce to create a delicious variety of healthy options. We constantly monitor our suppliers to ensure that we are getting 'best value' without losing sight of quality.
We operate a simple and effective cashless system. Every pupil is issued with a swipe card which can be topped up at any time with cash or cheques. Spending limits can be set by school or parents and carers and any dietary requirements added. The cashless system ensures that a quick and efficient service is maintained.
All secondary schools must comply with the Government's healthy school meals standards. The
Government's nutritional standards for schools have been implemented very successfully here at St. Mary's. Meals remain extremely popular with staff and pupils, despite the absence of crisps, sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks and other fat, salt and sugar laden foods.
