St Philip’s will be partially closed on Wednesday 1st February due to Industrial Action

School Meals

The school is dedicated to providing an environment that promotes healthy eating and enables students to make informed food choices. This will be achieved by the whole school approach to food provision and food education documented in the School Food policy. The policy was formulated through consultation between members of staff, governors, parents, students, and our school nurse. This school food policy is co-ordinated by Clare Malston.


The main aims of our school food policy are:

  • To provide a range of healthy food choices throughout the school day and in line with the mandatory School Food Standards
  • To support students to make healthy food choices and be better prepared to learn and achieve.
  • To ensure a consistent approach to healthy eating across the school community including students, staff and parents/carers.
