School Meals Information



In December 2014, new allergen legislation has come into force, and from January 2015 the new Food Standards became mandatory. This has meant that we have had to review our menus in order to ensure that they are compliant with the changes.


Eden, our catering company, have trained our catering staff to be aware of the changes to the legislation and competent at meeting the requirements. If you require any further information please speak to a member of our catering team.


Information about the School Food Standards is available from:
