School Meals

A contracted caterer, CLS Catering, provides our hot school meals which are available for £2.40 per meal. School menus are available from the school office and meals should be ordered via WisePay (meals should be ordered between Tuesday and Sunday for the following week). During meal times, children are encouraged to maintain good manners and are assisted by our caring lunchtime supervisors. 

 

Message from CLS Catering

Our menus have been nutritionally analysed and allergens recorded, any deviation from these set menus will affect the nutritional and allergen content. This is a live system and updates will be made to accommodate any product substitutions. Please ensure you speak to your School and on-site Unit Catering Manager if your child has specific dietary requirements. From time to time the demand for a popular dish on the day may result in us selling out therefore an alternative dish will be offered in its place, we will always try to accommodate customer needs.
