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 Autumn/Spring 2023/24 Multi-Choice menu commencing 4 September 2023 is available to download:
Please email the school office, firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.

Are in receipt of a qualifying benefit; and have a child moving from year 2 to year 3;
or already have a child(ren) in year 3 and above.
If your child is eligible for free school meals, they’ll remain eligible until 2023, or until they finish their current phase of schooling (primary or secondary), if that’s after 2023.
Apply by visiting www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals and selecting the tab “Apply for Free School Meals (Year 3 and Older”.

Registering for a FSM helps schools identify anyone on low income; the school can then claim additional funding from the government, which can help towards extra computers, books, trips out and staff etc.
