If children eat better, they feel better, play better and work better.

Universal Infant Free School Meals

Since September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 state-funded schools in England have received free school meals. The aim is to improve academic attainment and save families money.

We offer hot meals to Reception & Key Stage 1 which are provided by Dolce and ordered through their online School Grid service. They are a family based business with a genuine interest in providing a good, honest and reliable service.

Dolce ensure that each school dinner has a fresh, home-made taste. Their menus deliver diversity and great nutrition. Vegetables are fresh and full of vitamins, and their meat is carefully selected to ensure high quality.

Please look at their website for the standards that they set and meet when providing a wholesome, balanced and well procured meal for schools:
