School Meal Information

Pupils’ Choice School Meals Update 2016

Experience has shown us that it is best for children to select their choice of meal daily, as this ensures they will eat the meal requested.

Children are given a coloured wrist band before lunch showing their choice, which lets the catering staff know the meal they have selected. A hot meal and vegetarian meal will be available daily with the option to have a filled baguette or roll, and children can choose additional vegetables and select salads from the salad bar.  Desserts are chosen on the day.

Please note that the daily pupil choices are entered electronically as part of the school registration process at 8.55am. Therefore, if you do not inform the school of any appointment in advance and your child is marked as absent, they will not be cooked a meal.

Please ensure you leave a message on the absence line or Parentmail by 9.20am.  Unfortunately if we have not received notification by that time your child will not be cooked a meal, and you will have to provide a packed lunch.

If you have a child with a dietary allergy you will need to arrange a meeting with Jo Daymond, Contract Manager at Hertfordshire Catering Limited.   Tel no. 01707 292500 or e-mail to jo.daymond@hertscatering.co.uk

Payments can be made online using Wisepay or cheque made payable to HERTFORDSHIRE CATERING LIMITED.

Our aims & principles

At Manor Fields School we endeavour to:

  • Promote equality of treatment and equal access to educational opportunity within the school community;
  • Create a calm, purposeful and happy atmosphere within the school which enables all children to access the curriculum;
  • Foster positive caring attitudes towards everyone, in the community by promoting respect, courtesy, tolerance, teamwork, trust and honesty;
  • Acknowledge and value achievements at all levels in an environment that encourages pride in effort as well as achievement;
  • Encourage increasing independence and self-discipline so that each child learns to accept responsibility for his/her own behaviour;
  • Apply a consistent approach to behaviour throughout the school, in partnership with parents and carers;
  • Make boundaries of acceptable behaviour clear and ensure that appropriate behaviour is encouraged and recognised;
  • Promote a sense of direction and feeling of common purpose in an environment which is safe and secure for all in our school community.

There are two basic principles upon which our behaviour policy is based:

  • We believe that when a child demonstrates unacceptable behaviour, it is the behaviour which is unacceptable not the child.
  • We believe it is our duty to promote and encourage positive behaviour and not just react to that which is unacceptable.
