Independent Catering ensure quality in all their school meals and pride themselves on fulfilling their promises to cook and serve fresh meals on-site.

Meat and vegetarian options are available every day as well as a choice of salads, seasonal vegetables, freshly baked bread, fresh fruit platters, fruit yoghurt, milk and water. Independent can cater for children who have other dietary requirements where a menu is agreed in advance. This can include cultural or allergy and/or intolerance diets.
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction, which is becoming more common, and in an extreme situation could be life threatening. For this reason we ask parents not to include nuts or nut products in packed lunches and to provide an alternative to peanut butter or chocolate spread sandwiches. For the same reason we ask you not to send sweets, cakes etc. as a birthday treat for the children or give out in the milling area. We are also unable to use boxes or containers, which have held items such as nut products, nut oil, crunchy nut cornflakes, coconut etc.
