Our Approach to Food

Children learn better when they have had a good, healthy lunch. That’s why using the freshest, most natural ingredients is so important in our culture as Education Caterers.

We are very proud that our meals meet the Bronze Standard for Food For Life. More information available on the Food For Life websiteexternal link.


School Food Standards

Since December 2015 all school meals are required to adhere to the School Food Standards. All of our menus are checked to ensure they meet these government requirements. For more information, see GOV.UK standards for school food in Englandexternal link.

Eatwell Guide

The NHS eatwell guideexternal link shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a healthy, balanced diet. You don't need to achieve this balance with every meal but try to get the balance right over a day or even a week. This is a useful tool to help everyone try to eat a little bit better.


School menus

Our school menus have been designed to provide balanced, delicious and healthy choices for your child.

Our menus are revised twice a year to ensure variety and to make the most of seasonal produce, grown locally. This includes:

  • UK Farm Assured chicken, lamb, beef and turkey
  • free Range Yorkshire Eggs
  • responsibly caught and sustainable salmon and white fish
  • dolphin friendly tuna
  • local, seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables
  • working to ethical trading standards and supplying Fairtrade products where available
  • making sure all our produce is GMI free, has no hydrogenated fats and no artificial colours
