School Meals on Hutchison Appetite

Our meals are provided by Hutchison Catering who are an independent family-run business delivering a refreshingly different range of catering services.  The meals are all freshly cooked daily using local suppliers.  
Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels - which in turn affects achievement.  

Children in Key Stage One  (Reception, Years 1 and 2) are entitled to a free school meal. For Key Stage two pupils (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) the price is £2.35 per child per day.

In our primary schools our meals;

  • have a three-menu cycle, allowing children to become familiar with the food served;
  • are changed every term to reflect the seasons; and 
  • are written in consultation with pupils and cooks.

We are now able to offer four choices per day - a meat-based meal, a vegetarian option, a jacket potato, or a packed lunch option along with sides and a pudding/fresh fruit/yogurt.  The meals are balanced and are excellent value for money. 

Children may choose any of the above options on a daily basis. 

To pre-order meals for your child/children, please access your Hutchison Appetite account.  Please discuss with your child what has been ordered so they are aware of what they will be having at lunchtime. Payments for meals (£2.35 per meal, per child) should be paid in advance and can be made on Hutchison Appetite either via card or direct debit. 

To prevent overcrowding,  classes have a time slot in the dining hall to eat their meal.
