School Meals

We are proud of our school meals and believe that they represent excellent quality as well as fantastic value for money.  ABM Catering Ltd prepare and cook our healthy and delicious school meals.  They source food  produce from local suppliers wherever possible, in order to both support local businesses and to minimise the distance food travels.  Many items are grown on site by the children themselves so that they can enjoy the experience of planting, growing, harvesting and eating the freshest of food – We pride ourselves on having something grown onsite on our menu daily. Our allotments are a popular part of life at CCSJ.

If your child has any food allergies or dietary requirements please let us know.  All major food allergens are clearly displayed, and staff are happy to answer any questions you may have.
