Here at SET Maidstone & Causton School we believe that healthy eating plays a vital role in the successful education of our children.
School meals are cooked fresh on site each day and include breakfast, a mid morning snack and hot meals.
Lunch menus run on a three week cycle, each day includes a hot meat and vegetarian option, Jacket potatoes and deli bar.
Children may bring a packed lunch. Lunches should be packed in a named plastic container and should not contain nuts or products that contain nuts, fizzy drinks or sweets.
Eating together is an important part of the school day. We are lucky in having excellent meals cooked by a caring and hardworking staff. It is extremely helpful to us if the children come to school able to handle cutlery correctly. We also stress the importance of good manners, so that lunchtime is pleasant and relaxing for both children and staff.
