Catering and Free School Meals


Our catering service is provided by City Catering, a well-established and experienced school caterer. They are delighted to offer a tasty and delicious meal service to all pupils and use fresh produce that is delivered daily to our school, including seasonal fruit and vegetables, meat and locally baked bread. This is then prepared by their fully trained and dedicated catering team, meaning that over 80% of your child’s meal is homemade using quality ingredients sourced locally wherever possible.

City Catering holds the ‘Food for Life Silver Catering Mark’, and their menus are independently endorsed by the Soil Association. This award acknowledges that excellent meals are produced using quality ingredients from local suppliers wherever possible, using free range eggs, farm assured/organic meat (assured animal welfare standards in place, sourced in the UK with low food miles) and fish from sustainable sources (certified by the Marine Stewardship Council). They continue to win a wide variety of industry recognised awards for quality and service delivery.
