Cartmel Filling Station

From 1st September 2014 we transferred our catering provision in house and it has proven to be a great success.  This has not only enabled the school to save money on the management of the service but we are able to work at establishing close links with the school curriculum. 

All students have a PSHE lesson at some point throughout the academic year in the dining room where they have the chance to be consulted on the service and provide invaluable input into the development of the menus.  The students also provide ideas for theme days and weeks that are scheduled throughout the year. 

We currently provide morning break (10.50-11.15) and a lunch service (1.15-2.00).  Also available is a vending option which is available before, during and after school, offering cold drinks, snacks and meal deals. There are 2 free filtered water machines available in the dining room and in the covered way area next to the vending machines.

The menus are compiled by the catering manager with input from all students.  All the menus offered are compliant with the government food based standards. The school is part of the DFE School Food Plan.  All the menus and events can be found below.

The school runs a cash cafeteria system where students pay for their meals at the point of sale and we also offer an advance payment facility.  If you wish to take up this facility please send a letter detailing your child’s name, form and a cheque made payable to “Cartmel Priory School”. The catering staff will then keep a log of the balance and deduct any items purchased. Please note a lunch meal deal is £2.10, this on average equates to £75 per term. A member of staff will contact you when money is running low. 

We display all the allergen information in the dining room for the students and staff to make reference to.  If you want to discuss this further please contact the catering manager who would be happy to answer any questions and discuss menu alternatives if required.
