Margaret Wix Primary School
Excellence, Creativity, Individuality!
School meals are delivered by Herts Catering Ltd. They are cooked on the premises and offer excellent value for money. School meals for children in KS2 ( Year 3 to Year 6) should be paid for via Arbor, in advance. Meals for children in Reception and KS1 are currently free of charge.
School meals offer a healthy balance within a three week ‘Pupil Choice’ menu. There is always a vegetarian option as well as a range of salad items and fresh vegetables and an Halal option is available on Wednesdays. If your child has a specific dietary requirement or food allergy, this can be catered for but please contact the school office for further details. Pupils choose what they would like to eat from the day’s menu at morning registration time. The Herts Catering Ltd website provides more information about school meals and menu choices. To find our current menu, type our school name into the search box on their home page.
