School meals
 
 

Nutritious and delicious. Providing good food for growing brains and bodies.

We are delighted to say that our new kitchen and dining hall are ready to welcome the students for tasty, freshly-cooked lunches.

Our school meals are freshly prepared onsite, every day.

We prepare everything from scratch, including baking our own bread, using organic ingredients where possible.

We are proud to use local producers and suppliers:

Our fruit and vegetables are supplied by Matter Organics in Easton.

Our organic milk is from Bruton Dairy.

We serve organic shortgrain brown rice and organic wholewheat pasta from Essential Trading here in Fishponds.

Please let us know of any allergies or dietary requirements  - an allergen-free or vegan alternative is always possible.

Why Vegetarian?

A vegetarian menu gives us the opportunity to source the highest quality, seasonal ingredients within our budget. Vegetarian meals meet everyone's nutritional needs and mean that all members of our diverse school community can share the same meals together. 

You can contact Gabrielle in the school kitchen with any questions or feedback by emailing kitchen@steineracademybristol.org.uk.

About school lunches

Kindergarten chlldren eat school lunch together in their own classrooms.

Children in older classes eat in the dining hall. Each class eats together, so that they can all enjoy a shared meal. Children may have a meal prepared by the school kitchen, or bring a packed lunch.

All school-cooked meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.

Ordering lunches

Lunch orders are made through Parentmail.

Lunches should be ordered and paid for each term in advance. You will receive the menu for the forthcoming term with a form asking you to select your child's meal pattern and to pay for that up front, by the end of the previous term. Any absences during the term will be credited to you for the following term. 

If school dinners aren't pre-ordered and pre-paid, the kitchen may not be able to provide ad-hoc meals. 

Paying for meals

All children in Kindergarten and Class 1 receive free school meals.

For Class 2 upwards school meals will cost £2.50 per day.

Parents should book and pay for their child/ren's meal choices termly in advance via a form in ParentMail. The best way to pay is through the ParentMail shop online. If you have any difficulties, please contact Evie, our finance officer (finance@steineracademybristol.org.uk), to discuss a payment plan.

Any days where the child is not in school and misses a lunch will be credited to the following term.

Dietary Requirements, including allergies

All meals are vegetarian with option to be vegan.

Please let the office know of any dietary requirements.

You will be required to provide a document of support for your child's file. This can be from GP or other supporting practitioner eg: nutritionist, dietician, homeopath.

The school kitchen will provide alternatives in these instances.  

 

Menu TERM 4 (February/March 2017)                

Here is the menu for Term 4 - enjoying the lightening evenings and slightly warmer days!
 
This is a weekly rolling menu.       
           

If you have notified us of dietary requirements (medical or religious reasons), e.g gluten free diet, nut allergy etc, these will be provided for every day.  For example, where pasta appears on the menu, a gluten free pasta will be prepared for children who we know require this. Please notify the office of any changes.
