Benefits of good food at school
There is evidence that food eaten by young people at school affects their behaviour and ability to learn. By committing to a regular school meal you can be sure your child is eating well at lunchtime. So what are the benefits of enjoying a school lunch?
Throughout the year we will invite you in to share lunch with your child so you can taste the delicious school meals served at St. John's.
If your child is moving from packed lunch onto school dinners (or vice versa) please make sure you give school a weeks notice in writing to enable us to alter the ingredients ordered and delivered each week.
