School Meals

St Dominic’s Menu

The Chef/Manager and the team provide a well-balanced nutritious diet every day for the school community, whilst also catering for individual dietary needs and offering alternatives for pupils and students that have yet to develop their range of foods. We encourage all our learners to try new foods, making sure that they feel ‘safe’ to do so. The Chef/Manager attends food meetings to discuss the menus with the pupils and students to better understand their likes and dislikes.

For the last three years, we have maintained the highest rating from the Food Standards Agency, receiving 5 stars, as well as achieving the highest rating, for the last 3 years, for the internal audits that Connect Catering carry out during the year.

Morning Break

Healthy snacks are provided for the pupils & students on the playground.

Lunch Time

We have three sittings in the dining room, which helps control the noise levels. We offer meat or fish and vegetarian options each day, as well as baked potatoes, fresh vegetables, a salad bar and bread. We also offer alternatives for individual dietary needs. A choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt and homemade pudding are offered each day.

 

My Son has made incredible progress emotionally and applies himself much better academically. The mentoring aspect is key to his progress.
