Primary and Special School Meals

appleSpring & Summer 2014 Primary Menus

The latest edition of Primary School menus has been sent out to all pupils and parents. Having this information at home enables families to discuss and select meal choices in advance. These menus will run in four week cycles from 21st of April until the 10th of October 2014.

Currently we are working towards gaining a Food For Life Catering Mark award for the lunchtime meals provision to all Primary schools. The award will be proof of our efforts to improve our School Catering Service. It will also show that we are buying, preparing and serving quality food with animal welfare and healthy eating in mind.
