NEW LUNCH MENU SPRING/SUMMER 2019
A new lunch menu for spring/summer is due to start on Monday 25th February. However for the first two weeks (weeks beginning 25th February and 4th March) the children will be having ‘taster sessions’ so that our caterers, Aspens, can assess how the new dishes will be received by the children. Therefore, Aspens will continue with the current (winter) menu for the first two weeks back. The spring/summer menu will start on week 3 (week beginning 11th March.)
Week beginning 25/2/19 week 1 of the current menu with some taster sessions through the week
Week beginning 4/3/19 week 2 of the current menu with some taster sessions through the week
Week beginning 11/3/19 week 3 of new menu
A copy of the current winter menu is displayed in the main foyer, on the website and is also available from the school office.
Aspens is the company chosen by our school 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. We understand this and that’s why we are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
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!
At Aspens - we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of our 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, we want our customers to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey.
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. We 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 we regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. It is still important that our customers talk to us so we can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for them to eat.
