School Dinners

Derbyshire County Council Catering service provide our school meals.  Meals cost £2.20 per day, payable via Parentpay.

From their website:

We're very proud of our service and have achieved the Soil Association Food for Life Catering Mark Silver Accreditation in primary schools and the Bronze Catering Mark in all secondary schools.

The award means that we use local, seasonal and fresh ingredients which are free from trans fats, harmful additives and are not genetically modified. We only use UK Farm Assured meat which is better for animal welfare, sustainable sources of fish and free range eggs.

All our menus are created using the School Food Standards as set out by the government and adhere to strict nutritional guidelines so you can be assured that your child is receiving a high quality meal.  There are two choices of main course each day, as well as the option of ordering a sandwich meal or baked potato.

Our menus are on a 3-week cycle which changes every 6 months. New dishes and recipes are sometimes trialled by our school catering staff and children before they are added to the new menu.

The weekly menu can also be found on the school  newsletter.
