School meals

Update for Parents

With regard to the present industrial dispute the Primary Catering Service will continue to provide meals to pupils. If you have any queries regarding your ParentPay balance please contact DESC’s Finance Team by calling +44 1624 686761 between the hours of 9am to 4pm.

Our primary school meals service provides a good range of healthy meal choices in order to fulfil some of the daily nutritional requirements of primary school children. Meals meet minimum requirements for protein, zinc, iron and vitamins and don't exceed maximum recommended levels of salt, sugar and fat.

The school meals service serves up some 3,500 meals a day, or well over half a million a year, to primary school pupils.

Menus are on a 3 week cycle  and are completely changed twice a year, in the autumn and spring, to ensure pupils enjoy a variety of foods.

The school meals service welcomes feedback on its meals, new ideas and recipes. For more information on school meals please visit the wiki, telephone +44 1624 685709 or email the school meals office.
