Menus for secondary schools

Menus comply with School Food Standards and all new dishes are tested by students.

Schools are provided with a three-week menu twice a year, fresh fruit and salads are always on the menu. This includes dishes which are both healthy and appealing to students. The menu is available in school, on our website and as a leaflet for parents.

Sustainability is very important to us; we are committed to delivering a responsible catering service and minimising our impact on the environment.

Our fish is MSC certified - MSC certification is a way of showing a fishery meets international best practice for sustainable fishing. We also use several free range and Red Tractor approved ingredients throughout our menus.

The Red Tractor logo is only found on British food and drink products that have been certified to rigorous standards from farms to pack. The logo means the food has been responsibly sourced, safely produced and comes from crops and animals that have been well cared for.
