Bristol City Council have again awarded Chartwells (part of the Compass Group) the schools catering contract and they will be providing meals at Sefton Park for this coming academic year.
The Universal Infant Free School Meals Scheme continues to provide free school meals to Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. With effect from 02 November 2020 Chartwells will be increasing the cost of meals for Junior children from £2.15 to £2.25 per day.
Due to the COVID pandemic and the restrictions in place Chartwells are unable to offer a salad bar at this current time.
Please see below a statement from Chartwells and their current menu:
"Please see our new altered menu with the sides that are served with each dish, this is either a side salad or vegetables. Fruit is also served every day the same as before.
We understand that the menu is not as diverse as the 3 week menu usually offered as a result Covid-19. This is a decision that was not taken lightly but it does ensure pupil safety remains our top priority.
We have to ensure we are operating a Covid secure meal service and in order to achieve this we have needed to complete a full review of the menu and make alterations to ensure we are adhering to the guidance provided."
Children can choose either to bring in a packed lunch or opt for a school meal each day.
We operate a wristband system as a means of identifying each child’s chosen meal (red - meat; green - vegetarian; blue - halal; orange - allergies/special dietary needs; no band - packed lunch), in line with other Bristol primary schools. Children notify the school of their meal choice at morning registration and the wristbands will be distributed to children by our lunchtime supervisors.
