Canteen and food selection
Moseley Meals are provided by Coombs Catering Partnership and are served in our spacious school dining area. Students and staff are offered a wide variety to choose from; including a new 3 weekly cycle of menus of hot and cold foods.
Food is offered every day during lunch break, and children are also welcome to bring their own packed lunches too. We serve sandwiches, wraps, fruit, baked potatoes, pasta and a choice of hot dishes, freshly made each day.
Our canteen does not use cash. Instead, we take a biometric scan of each child’s fingerprint. This is then allocated to an account that the child can top up each day, week or term using machines around school.
Please allow about £2.40 a day for lunch. Parents/carers can give this to their child daily, weekly or termly so they can top up their account themselves.
We do not supply change – parents/carers must give their child the correct amount to put on their account.
All meat served to students is halal. Fish and vegetarian options are also available to buy, and students may bring food from home to eat in the canteen. Students must always clear their own plates, cutlery and litter in the canteen. All food and drink purchased in school must be eaten in the canteen.
We do not allow sugary, fizzy drinks or energy drinks on the school site. Studies show they can reduce children’s ability to concentrate, damage their teeth and contribute to childhood obesity and other health problems. Healthy alternatives are available to buy in our canteen, and chilled drinking water is always available for free. Energy drinks will be confiscated and disposed of. Crisps and gum are also banned from the school site.
