Diliges proximum tuum sicut te ipsum
"You shall love your neighbour as yourself"
Mark 12:31


A strong focus on providing good quality food and structured mealtimes is important to the growth and social development of children.

Breakfast clubs and a high-quality lunchtime food provision ensures that our students are enabled and ready to make the most of their time here at MAPS.

All children who are in Reception, Year One and Year Two are provided with a free school meal. We also offer fruit and milk to pupils at snack time.

It is key to also embrace the importance of mealtimes for a child's social development. Lunchtimes are used as learning opportunities and a chance to reward good behaviour. Strong social interaction during mealtimes is encouraged.

Key information:

  • Hot meals are FREE for all children in Reception, Year One and Year Two
  • Order online a week ahead
  • Main meal and vegetarian option daily
  • Vegetables and/or salad daily
  • Desert or fruit

Please order your child’s menu choice by Tuesday at midnight, ready for the following week. You can order for up to one term in advance.
