As a maintained school we engage with Chartwells catering services for our school meals. Chartwells are committed to delighting our customers with great tasting food that contributes to their own wellbeing. We’re proud that all of our menus offer a carefully comprised mix of nutritional and tasty food, which is compliant to government legislation. We also take special care to ensure pupils and students with dietary requirements can experience Chartwells meals if endorsed as being linked to a medical condition.
The school periodically reviews the service agreements and are made aware of any changes to menus and administration, as well as discussing new initiatives.
Parents receive order slips each half term and select the appropriate meal for their child from a range of main, vegetarian of jacket potato combinations. Orders have to be placed one week in advance and have to be processed on a Monday for the forthcoming week.
Water is provided.
All school meals can be supplemented by adding items from a salad bar which is accessible 3 times during a normal week.
Meals are delivered from a central hub and heated on site with some preparations carried out by our retail/kitchen team.
Children are supervised throughout the process of selecting and eating their meals by a dedicated lunchtime team.
Families may choose to opt out of the meal scheme and provide their own ‘packed lunch’.
Children in Reception start their lunch at 11.50am.
All other classes eat within the 1 hour allocated time slot.
