Our contractor Mellors Catering has worked in partnership with pupils, parents and the community to develop a 3 week menu rota that meets the needs of the school community. The catering team have worked with the school to run meetings and workshops with parents and develop food that the children will not only enjoy but that meet the school nutritional standards as set out by the DCSF September 2009.

Our contractor:-

  • Provides healthy and nutritious food, that meets all associated legislation, to all users of the catering facilities, thus fostering the well being of all concerned.
  • Provides food that appeals to the tastes of the diverse ethnic mix of pupils, staff, parents and community.
  • Creates an enjoyable dining experience for pupils and staff that contribute to their education and social skills.
  • Provides catering that supports and encourages extended school activities. This includes a breakfast service and after school clubs and can also cover other activities by parents and the wider community both during and out of school hours as well as school holidays.

All food served in our school is Halal certified.

The school currently sub contracts the provision of school meals for our children to  Mellors Catering Ltd. They are contracted to provide a healthy and nutritionally balanced meal, providing vegetarian options and Halal meat, if requested.

We have offered Halal meat and poultry, as standard, through this service for a number of years in response to requests from parents. We currently follow the Sheffield City Council’s policy on Halal meat and poultry. This states that all Halal meat used in school meals must be pre-stunned before slaughter.

Our Halal certificates, plus details of our meat and poultry suppliers, are available should any parent wish for more information.

Please note that alongside our Halal meat and poultry dishes, we also offer a good variety of nutritional, hot vegetarian meals, jacket potatoes and sandwiches with meat free fillings.

Mellors have been  Awarded ‘Contract Cater of the Year 2017
