English Martyrs' Catholic Primary School

Nurturing a relationship with Jesus Christ


School Dinners


English Martyrs is a “Healthy School” and encourages children to eat a balanced diet that enables them to make the most of the day in school.

School dinners are commissioned by Reading Borough Council who uses Chartwells which is part of the Compass Group UK.

Details on the menu, costs and how to pay can be found on the Reading Borough Council web site using the following link.

Packed lunches & tuck

Parents are encouraged to give their children a healthy pack lunch and snack.  Limiting food with high sugar content such as fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets helps maintain the children’s concentration and good behaviour.

We recommend that children bring in a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetables or healthy cereal bar for playtime.
