School Meals

At St Cuthbert Mayne School, pupils are offered the Multi Choice menu prepared for them by Herts Catering Ltd (HCL).

Children have two options to choose from each day – either a red option or green (vegetarian) option. Pupils will choose each morning with their teacher so the correct number of chosen meals can be given to our cook.

The Winter/Spring Multi-Choice menu commencing 4 November is available to download: HCL Multi Winter-Spring 19-20

Please email the school office, admin@cuthbertmayne.herts.sch.uk, with amendments to your child’s weekly meal pattern. Please note, this pattern will repeat each week. The cook requires two weeks’ notice in writing for a change to the pattern.

If your child has a medical or food allergy and your child requires a special diet menu, please apply to Herts Catering Ltd online using the Special Menu feature on their website or telephone HCL on 01707 292500.  Click here to access the Special Menu application.

The cost of each meal is £2.60; weekly cost £13.00. Parents are invoiced half termly and school meals must be paid for in advance, preferably by Schoolgateway or alternatively by cheque made out to Herts Catering Ltd, which should be sent to the school office in a sealed named envelope. Cash payments should be brought directly to the school office.
