Our school kitchen is managed by HC3S. HC3S is the largest provider of school meals in Hampshire, supplying hot and cold nutritional meals to 445 primary schools across the county. HC3S also supplies 3 schools in Dorset and 11 in Wiltshire.
Everything is cooked in our own kitchen by Mrs Newton-Darby and her amazing team of cooks who have been awarded the highest grade of 5* for hygiene and food standards.
To view the 3 week menus please see the pdf below (April - October 2022). To broaden the variety of meals, we have recently introduced the Street Menu (please see below), available to all Year groups. We also offer a jacket potato option where children can select from a variety of toppings such as cheese, beans and tuna-mayonnaise.
HC3S now have a Facebook page, HC3S Education Catering, so parents can see what is for dinner each day, and also have a website https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/hc3s/education-catering, where you can find useful information, menus and guides, including special diet requests.
