We know how important it is for pupils to receive tasty, wholesome food whilst at school and look forward to welcoming pupils to join the Chartwells family from the start of term.

We love to encourage fun and experimentation at lunch times with our 11-18 year olds. As you’ll be well aware, they’re in their main development years and helping them make the best choices and broadening their food experiences is so important. Every day we strive to create the most tasty meals, that are nutritionally balanced and compliant with School Food Standards.

This is what we do:

Create fresh food made with good honest ingredients 

We cater for all food tastes and dietary requirements – our menus will feature a variety of dishes 

We encourage all pupils to try something new and regularly provide sample taster pots for pupils to try.

These may include international foods linked to language groups, energy foods to support rehearsals and sports practice and traditional meals generally related to subjects such as history or music

We like to engage with pupils about menu choices and will regularly hold food committee meetings to gather feedback and propose new dishes and ideas

Theme days – street food led:

Street food is not only a trend but how everyone eat day to day. ​

Theme days are a great way of introducing innovation into our offer and help keep students excited about our offer.​

Working Together During COVID

A range of social distancing signage has been developed specifically for children using a softened message.

Hand sanitiser will always be available and must be used by all visitors.

Clear signage and marking on where to stand and queue.

Thorough cleaning regime in place especially on touch point areas.

Safe spaces in the dining room, so pupils are sat close enough to engage with their peers, but far enough to protect one another.
