School Meals

St. Joseph’s provides an opportunity for all pupils to enjoy a hot cooked lunch each day.

School meals are provided in-house following the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust Garden Kitchen Menu at a cost of £2.20 per day, £11.00 per week.

We ask parents kindly to pay dinner money every Monday morning on-line or by cash/cheque (made payable to Trinity Catholic MAT) using a money bag marked clearly with their child’s name. Dinner money is collected by the class teacher.

Our fantastic kitchen staff get involved with all of our school activities and often get dressed up for theme days. Have a look at some of their costumes and the lovely treats they make!
