St Gregory's Catholic Primary School Part of The Stella Maris Catholic Federation

School Lunches

Lunchtime is an extremely important part of the busy school day. At St Gregory's, children may bring their own packed lunch or enjoy one of our excellent, healthy meals.  Our school meal provider is St Joseph's Catholic High School.  Our school holds 5 stars for Food Hygiene awarded by the Food Standard Agency (see link below).

 

In September, we introduced an online cashless meal booking and payment system for parents called 'Schoolgateway'. This App is also great for the children as they can choose from the meal choices available each day with their parents at home.  All meal must be booked online using the Schoolgateway App by 9.00am each school day, after which time the system locks and parents are unable to access meals choices for that day.

 

Please follow the link below for more information on how to use the Schoolgateway app.  You can also watch short video guides too!

If after watching the 'how to videos' or reading the schoolgateway guides you still need help with the Schoolgateway App, please contact the school office on 01900 606050 or email admin@stgregorys.cumbria.sch.uk or office@stgregorys.cumbria.sch.uk

 

The cost of a school dinner is £2.20 per day (£11.00 per week) payable at least one week in advance. Children in Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 are automatically entitled to free school meals.

 

Nursery children may also choose to stay for lunch at a cost of £1.40 per day.

 

For other year groups, free school meals can be applied for using the form at the bottom of this page.

 

Allergen information: In line with requirements, St Joseph's Catholic High School ensures that allergen information is available to parents. Please contact Mrs Spedding, St Joseph's Catering Manager on 01900 873290 for further information.  She is able to cater for allergies, food intolerances or medical conditions.

 

Healthy Eating: Our school dinners provide a very healthy choice and the best way of ensuring your child has a good balanced meal at lunch time.

 

However, we know some families prefer their child to have a packed lunch from home, so we encourage parents and carers to provide a tasty and healthy packed lunch. Here are some good websites which offer useful advice on what to put in a healthy lunchbox:
