School Meals at Stella Maris are provided by Chartwells. The cost of school meals is currently £2.30 per day. Payment is made using ParentPay. Some parents may be entitled to claim free meals for their children. The School Clerical Officer is able to advise on this. All enquiries will be dealt with in confidence. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are now entitled to a free school meal in line with a government policy.
Children may also bring in a packed lunch. These should be in a lunch box clearly marked with the child’s name. Please see the School Food Policy (link below) for advice on preparing healthy packed lunches. Older children are able to go home for lunch, provided we are told in advance of the arrangements.
Chartwells’ menus follow the government’s nutritional standards for school meals – the meals are healthy and enjoyable, with plenty of variety.
