At St Clare's we are pleased to be able to offer a school meals service in partnership with Trafford Council. The meals are freshly prepared using good quality ingredients and offer a wide choice of healthy options, including vegetarian meals, for our children.
If you would like your child to have school dinners, please contact the School office via the School Gateway app. We must have a minimum of one week's notice to change from packed lunch to school dinner or vice versa and please contact the School Office if you wish to make any changes.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer occasional school meals with the exception of Christmas dinner when children who bring packed lunches are invited to purchase a school meal.
School meals are currently free of charge for all children from Reception class up to and including Year 2. Children from Year 3 to Year 6 must pay for meals unless entitled to Free School Meals. If you think your child is entitled to Free School Meals please contact the School Office for advice on how to apply.
Healthy Packed Lunches
A packed lunch can make a valuable contribution to your child’s diet and future health.
It is important to include a balanced variety of foods so that your child can get all the nutrients they need.
Recent surveys looking at children’s lunchboxes found that they were too high in fat (especially saturated fat), salt and sugar, and just under half of lunchboxes contained no fruit.
Please see the information below relating to the healthy lunchbox guide.
