School Meals

Our catering contract is managed by Stir. 

Stir are a small catering business who quite simply, love food! Stir provide the children with their daily food whilst at school. Stir feel it is vital to provide healthy, nutritious meals to all, including those with dietary needs.

Stir are really looking forward to welcoming the children into the dining room and serving them delicious, home-cooked food, full of flavour and fun.

The food children eat at school plays an important role in their wellbeing, and eating a well-balanced diet not only helps to maintain and improve their health but also sets them on the right track for later life. Stir understands this and that’s why they are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food, so they can guarantee they are healthy and balanced.

Stir loves to add some fun to the dining room. They work hard to create dining experiences that are welcoming, warm, social and fun. Stir hopes that the children will look back at their school lunches and not only remember eating delicious food, but also having a great time with their friends!
