Food Services - School Canteen
MetroFresh provide the catering provision here at St Peter’s Catholic High School.
There are two Dining Halls, one for Years 7, 8 and 9, the second for Years 10 & 11 which serve the students a variety of food. The main Hall is open for Breakfast 8am-9am serving light snacks and hot toasted items along with hot and cold drinks ideal for the students who arrive at school early.
Break time sees an array of breakfast items from fruit and yoghurt to toasties and bagels. Service is in both Dining Halls and is from 10:55-11:10.
The lunch time service is open from 12:50-13:40. Again both of the catering provisions are available to students. Here they may choose a hot traditional meal, a sandwich, a snack item, chilled drinks, freshly baked goods and anything on the weekly menu. The menus and prices can be found below.
All students are encouraged to sit in the Dining Hall to eat their meals; this also supports reducing rubbish accumulation outside and around the site.
Students who bring a packed lunch are welcome to eat in the Dining Halls with their friends. There is also an overspill area in the Drama Theatre at lunchtimes.
Here at St Peter’s Catholic High School we offer a cashless system for purchasing food and refreshments. This makes service faster, easier and students don’t need to carry money around. Finger print recognition is used so a child can’t lose cards or forget pin numbers, however a code can be provided if you prefer. Online payments are advised to load monies onto a student’s account and help to avoid busy times loading the cash machines in school. We set a daily limit of £7.00 maximum spend, however this can be lowered if you request it.
A free school meal is £2.30 from Sept 2018. This will automatically update on your child’s account on a daily basis, but will not accumulate if not spent. This may be used at break or lunch for their convenience. As this is uploaded to their account, other students would not know that this is a free school meal. This can be topped up by parents if they so wish. The top up will stay on their account if unspent.
Students, please be sure to:
- Top up before a school day so you know you have enough funds for your meal.
- Respect others in the Dining Hall when queuing and eating your lunch.
- Not take food outside.
Use bins and respect the cleanliness of the school and leave your tables clean.
