School Meals

Cashless Catering

Holy Cross operates Cashless Catering in school. There is further information available in the Parent Pack concerning the Biometric thumb scanner technology.

Our in house catering service is supplied by Mellors Catering. To find out more about them, we invite you to visit their website.

Holy Cross is a healthy eating school.

The School Cafeteria offers a wide selection of items including soup, main dishes, snacks, salads, fruit, cheese and hot and cold drinks.  Items are individually priced and pupils may choose from the daily menus.

The cafeteria opens before school at 8.30 am for Breakfast Club to encourage a good start to the day.

The cafeteria is also open at morning break to provide snacks and hot and cold drinks for pupils.  Pupils are able to pre-order a lunch “grab bag” containing sandwiches, fruit and a drink. This reduces the need to queue at lunch time and is especially useful for those pupils involved in lunch time activities.

Pupils may bring healthy packed lunches, providing that they are eaten in the dining room or the outdoor picnic area.   We do not allow pupils to go home for lunch without the written permission of their parents.  Pupils are not allowed to have lunch at any nearby shops, nor at the homes of their friends.
