If your child is not entitled to free school meals then you must pay for school dinners, or send them with a healthy packed lunch.
School meals cost £2.30 per day and should be paid for in advance via the School Gateway app. Children select their meal choice during morning registration.
Please contact the school office if you would like support with the app.
All meal options are available when a child books their meal during morning registration with their class teacher. However, if a child arrives late to school (i.e. after 9am) then the only meal options available to them will be the 'Main Event' or the 'Vegan Option'. Hot Tomato Pasta, Sandwiches and Jacket Potatoes cannot be ordered for children arriving after 9am as the system is closed for these options.
Trips & Visits
If you pay for school meals then please send your child with a packed lunch if their class is out on a trip. If your child receives free school meals, a packed lunch will be provided for them.
We have chosen Aspens to provide the meal service to our pupils. They specialise in providing catering to schools and colleges across the country and are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
The food children eat at school plays an important role in their wellbeing, and eating a well balanced diet will not only maintain and improve their health, but will also set them on the right track for later life. Aspens understand this and that’s why they are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
Lots of choice
We have a fantastic range to choose from and we make sure that we serve the variety of food that children like and want to eat. It’s not all about eating vegetables and fruit – although we do make sure we get our balance right!
Aspens take their responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of the dishes are prepared everyday using quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients that are responsibly sourced.
As well as ensuring the food on the plate is healthy, Aspens want our pupils to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey.
Special diets and food allergens
Don’t think that your child can’t enjoy our great food if they have a special diet – they are an important part of our catering service. Aspens can provide food if they have an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.
Legislation requires caterers to provide allergen information on food sold that is served ‘unpackaged’. Aspens already cater for lots of children with allergies and they regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes.
