Award-winning Cafe FUSION is run by St Peter's in-house catering department who are keen to encourage all pupils to eat and drink healthily, so we offer a wide range of healthy food - our menus are regularly reviewed to take advantage of healthy eating guidelines. We are fully compliant with the government legislation on healthy school meals, and as a result of our high standards we have recently gained further official commendation - The Healthy Schools Award Status.
Food is served at breaktime between 11am and 11.15am and at lunch time between 12:15pm - 1:00pm and 1:15pm - 2.00pm. A biometric system is used by staff and pupils with funding for free school meals transferred electronically to qualifying pupils. School meals are popular and enjoyed by large numbers of pupils and staff.
Our hard working canteen staff also enable us to run a breakfast behaviour and attendance incentive initiative, free toast is prepared and delivered to the form group that receives the lowest behaviour points or the best attendance every week.
To promote healthy eating, our canteen also provides free fruit to pupils on a daily basis each break time and is available from any of our tills.
In addition to the wide and varied selection available via our lunchtime menu, we also offer daily ‘Chefs Specials’. These specials offer our pupils the opportunity to educate and excite their taste buds with a diverse range of dishes, from escargot to Sea Bass.
The school's horticultural project provides us with a fantastic source of the freshest possible seasonal ingredients. Cafe FUSION benefits from the many varieties of organic herbs that are grown and tended on school grounds by our pupils. We take pleasure in preparing and cooking the fresh ingredients that we have harvested ourselves, so that the pupils and staff can enjoy eating them at the traditional time of year.
Cafe FUSION caters for all tastes. We offer vegetarian options, allergy-friendly food. Our curries are very popular as well as Italian food, traditional Irish dishes, and fish and chips on Fridays - to name but a few.
The catering manager attends regular meetings with the school council which allows pupils to voice their opinions on the food and service, which provides us with valuable feedback.
Outside catering is also available, we are able to cater for any size function and supply everything from a formal three-course lunch to a finger buffet, Call Pat Walkden/Chris Sharples for more details and a quote on 0161-248-1550.
