The lunch service available within Saint Anthony’s is run on a cafeteria system. Your child, therefore, may choose from a wide variety of nutritious, enjoyable menu items. Staff collect pupil choices, from the menu, first thing every morning.
Catering staff in the school will encourage your child to choose wisely thereby ensuring that they enjoy a well balanced meal.
To ensure that medical requirements are satisfied, please supply the Catering Supervisor with the relevant information.
Arrangements are also made for children who bring a packed lunch.
All schools in Renfrewshire offer a nutritionally balanced, healthy meal for your child each school day. Many studies have shown a strong link between a healthy diet and concentration.
The Renfrewshire Council school meals website provides details of these daily choices. The website also offers delicious recipes of some of the pupil’s favourites, and provides information on upcoming events and theme days.
Remember, from January 2015, children in Primary 1 to 3 across Renfrewshire will have the option of receiving a FREE school meal every day. Parents do not have to do anything to claim this as pupils in the appropriate age group will have automatic entitlement.
Children of parents receiving income support or income based job seekers allowance and in some cases child tax credit, are entitled to a free midday meal. Information and application forms for free school meals are available from schools, registration offices, customer service centres or may be downloaded from the council’s website: www.renfrewshire.gov.uk
Children who are also entitled to free school meals are entitled to free milk at lunchtime. Milk may also be available for sale in the school during the lunch period.
