Our menus have been developed around current needs and demands. The range and uptake of choice is driven by our students and we constantly try new products to make the lunchtime interesting and encourage a healthy balanced diet.
Students have a wide variety of lunch choices available on a daily basis. Salads, pasta, jacket potatoes, a choice of hot main meals (including a vegetarian option), fruit bar, cold and hot desserts are on offer each day from the main canteen. Students can also purchase lunch from 'The Cafe' where a selection of hot and cold sandwiches/wraps, fruit and water are available.
The food served at St Cuthbert's is produced by our catering partners St Helens Council Schools Catering Service. Where possible, our food is made fresh from scratch every day. Andrew Ferguson, Executive Development Chef regularly meets with our School Council and School Food Action Groups to discuss how to further develop the lunchtime offerings available within our school.
Each day the main canteen has a different theme and a different menu. From 'Tastes of the World' Mondays to 'British Classics' Thursday there's something for every taste.
A full break time menu is served in both the canteen and 'The Cafe' at morning break.
Students use their ParentPay accounts linked to their thumbprints to pay for food, which means faster queues and that they do not need to bring cash to school.
St Helens Council Schools Catering Service were awarded a five-star rating in June 2015 for their food hygiene at the school.
