School Catering

In North Yorkshire we believe that for the very best start in life children and young people need good nutrition.

In North Yorkshire school meals are only made from

  • fresh meat and poultry sourced from the Yorkshire region
  • fruit and vegetables, sourced regionally where  possible using local suppliers
  • products free from additives associated with health problems in young children
  • fats free from hydrogenated oils
  • menus which are nutritionally analysed to provide nutritional balance
  • ingredients, produced freshly every day in a school kitchen

Primary school lunches cost £2.10 a day for two courses (£10.50 a week) and:

  • have a three menu cycle allowing children to become familiar with the food served;
  • are changed every term to reflect the seasons;  
  • and are written in consultation with pupils and cooks

From September 2014 all children in key stage 1, which includes reception, year 1 and year 2, are entitled to a free school meal.


From the 5th June until 21st July 2017, we are offering a special 10 day menu. Please click here to view the menu. The dates are listed below:

Herbie says - After lunch eat a piece of cheese or carrot and this will help keep your teeth strong and healthy.
