**If you need labels for you child’s uniform and want to help raise money for St. Ben’s at the same time, please visit:-
No more sewing or ironing on labels.
No more losing your pencil case or P.E. kit!
Now you can just stamp everything with a personalised stamp usable on fabric, metal, wood & some plastics!
Please use our school’s unique code – YO624DE (no spaces) – which will help raise money for St. Benedict’s Society.
The midday meal is cooked on the premises in our own kitchen and it forms an integral part of the school day. It is in fact a good opportunity for social mixing within the school.
Care is taken to ensure that the food is healthy and wholesome. We currently rotate meals on a three weekly basis (paper copies of the menu are available from the school office).
Specialist diets can be catered for on request. Please contact the school office for Special Diet Request Form.
Children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 are entitled to a ‘Universal Infant Free School Meal’. Each individual school dinner will cost £2.30 as from September 2021and MUST be paid in advance. It can be paid daily, weekly, monthly, half-termly or termly using the secure online facility ParentPay or in cash at the School Office. For more information on this facility or password resets – please contact the School Office.
As an alternative to the main dish of the day there will be the option to have a jacket potato with beans, cheese or tuna.
Please Note – The menu may be varied slightly, depending on the availability of produce. We will also try to ensure that no meat is served on a Friday.
