Catering services at Chorlton High
We are proud to provide in-house catering services to our students and staff. Our menus are nutritionally balanced, full of local flavours and adapted to suit each school. They not only meet but go beyond government guidelines. We are committed to using and sourcing ingredients with assured provenance from local and regional suppliers. We use products with high animal welfare standards – for example, RSPCA Freedom Food Free Range Eggs, Marine Stewardship Approved (MSC) fish and fair-trade bananas. All meals are freshly prepared on-site, and all meats are made with Red Tractor/Farm Assured fresh meat and all suppliers are checked by an external body to ensure they comply with statutory obligations.
Healthy eating is at the very core of our approach to food. We enthusiastically encourage balanced eating patterns within our schools. We invest in training all our staff, and our practice of purchasing seasonal produce enables us to deliver exceptional value.
We are committed to delivering a well-balanced diet to every student, as it helps with physical fitness and overall good health, both in body and mind. In addition, by getting into the habit of eating healthily, we can avoid the risk of severe health problems in the future.
Our menus work on a three weekly rotation each term, although we occasionally amend the menu based on student feedback or availability of fresh products from our suppliers. The menu is available on our website and is also provided to students each week as part of the form time messenger and displayed in the dining area.
Our objective is to make the catering facilities the first choice for all students and staff. To be consistent, customer-focused in support of the school's obligation to healthy eating. To be continually aware of and compliant with legislation, food base standard law and maintaining a high level of hygiene.
We have fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable catering staff who get to know our students well. In addition, our catering managers are always happy to discuss any individual catering needs with either parents or students.
