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.
