School Meals

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

School Meals

Our school catering service is provided by staff directly employed by our Trust as part of the Bishop Wilkinson Catering Services Team.

Menus will be rotated on a 3 week cycle.  There is no pre-ordering, children can choose on the day.

School dinners for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are free of charge. The cost of meals from September for Key Stage 2 pupils (Y3, Y4, Y5 & Y6)  will be £2.40per day/ £12.00 per week.

We ask that dinner money is brought in on a Monday morning in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and amount of money clearly written on the envelope. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust’


Packed lunches may be brought in a lunch box.  We would, however, ask you to do your best to encourage your children to take up school lunches to promote a healthy diet. Any drinks should be in plastic bottles not cans. 

Please try to ensure that packed lunches comprise mainly of savoury foods and some fresh fruit. Sweet foods should be limited to only one biscuit/cake. Sweets should never be in a packed lunch. These will be sent back home uneaten.

All in Fridays

We are continuing with ‘All in Fridays’ (Fishy Friday) if your child is currently on packed lunches but would like a dinner on a Friday please inform school.  There is a payment of £2.40 (currently) for Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children.  Please ensure payment is brought into school in an envelope clearly marked.
