Great Tasting Food That Your Children Will Love

Miquill is the company chosen by us to provide the meal service for our pupils from November 2020.

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.  

Responsible Catering

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.

Special Diets and Food Allergens

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’.  Miquill already cater for lots of children with allergies and  regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. 

Free School Meals

FREE SCHOOL MEALS is an entitlement that some children can receive due to their parents’/carers’ circumstances. To check if you eligible, please click on the following link:

Can my child bring a packed lunch to school?

Your child may, if they prefer, bring a packed lunch to school. This should be a nutritious meal which provides them with the energy they need for afternoon lessons e.g. a filled sandwich / roll, a piece of fruit, a cereal bar etc. (no sweets or fizzy drinks please). Water is always provided for those children who do not bring a drink. As some pupils have severe allergies we ask that no nuts, peanut butter or eggs (e.g. boiled eggs / egg mayonnaise) are included in a child’s lunch.
