School Meals

School Lunches at St James’

Enfield Catering Service, who have been awarded the Silver Food for Life Catering Mark, provide delicious meals for our children. 

The food will be freshly prepared on site, using seasonal, sustainable and healthy ingredients. Enfield Catering Service are fully committed to animal welfare and only use meat that is classified under a farm-assurance scheme.  They have received Compassion in Farming’sGood Egg Award’ for their free-range eggs and the ‘Good Dairy Commendation’ for their organic milk and yoghurt, as well as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)accreditation for only serving sustainable fish.

Enfield Catering Services understand that managing allergies and special dietary requirements can be challenging for parents, so for children with medically-confirmed allergies or special dietary requirements their nutritionist can tailor make suitable menus. 

It is fantastic that our children will have a variety of choices, including a cold option each day as well as unlimited access to the salad bar!  I am sure that you will be as impressed as the children with the wide variety of meals, including some tasty (and healthy) desserts!

As previously you are asked to pay for your child/children’s meals in advance of the week.  Payments are to be made using our online system.  The cost will be £12.50 per week.
