At Clore Shalom we are proud of our school meals and our commitment to providing our pupils with a healthy and balanced kosher meal. Our meals are cooked fresh on the premises daily and offer a range of choices to suit and accommodate everyone. For further information about our caterers see below. You will also find a link to the latest lunch menu just below.
Caterplus is now the largest Independent contract caterer to serve the Jewish market, working with Nine schools and 30 other organisations. We have built up an excellent network of kosher suppliers, created a kosher catering infrastructure and built up a team of experienced kosher nutritionists. Not only do we provide excellent quality and imaginatively presented fresh food, but we welcome our clients to see our operation and training procedures first hand, so that they can have confidence in the integrity of the food service we provide. We have built a very healthy reputation within the Jewish community, not just because we’re able to serve the needs of liberal, united and orthodox followers of the Jewish faith, but because of our flexible approach and high standards of service.
If your child has a packed lunch, please provide a clearly labelled lunch box and have a drink in a non-glass container. Pupils that bring a packed lunch from home are reminded that they are not allowed to bring in any meat from home as only kosher meat, provided by our caterers is allowed by pupils on the premises. As we are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle we also do not allow sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks.
Due to some severe nut allergies in school it is very important that your child's packed lunch is nut free (this includes peanut butter).
All children in Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal.
However, it is important that Parents/Carers who in receipt of certain benefits, complete the online forms to enable their child/ren to receive free school meals as they progress through the school and will ensure pupil premium funding is allocated to the school.
If you think you are entitled to free school meals you need to apply to Hertfordshire County Council as soon as possible as it can take some time to process and is not backdated (please follow the link below).
