At Moorside Primary, our in-house catering team provides school meals. There is a fantastic selection of hot and cold food each day. There is always a hot main meal, hot vegetarian choice, jacket potato or a cold sandwich. There is also a wide variety of puddings each day. Children choose their meal each morning so that we can make sure they always get their choice. You can see our current menus here:
School meals cost £2.25 and this needs to be paid for using MCAS.
