We supply approximately 16,400 school meals every day to children at infant, junior, primary and secondary schools in Rotherham.
We use comments from parents and children to create menus that your child will like and that meet their needs.
All of our school meals are nutritionally balanced and are cooked fresh on-site every day using locally sourced meat, fruit, vegetables and dairy products where possible.
All our Managers and Cooks, and many of our Assistant Cooks, are qualified to a minimum of NVQ Level 2 in Professional Cookery. The Cooks have also achieved Level 2 qualifications in Health & Nutrition to assist them in giving advice to the students about the foods they are eating.
Our menus are designed to meet the national nutritional standards so that the children of Rotherham benefit in receiving all the required elements for their growth and development.
To see more about our School Lunches we have created two videos designed to give an insight into what pupils and parents can expect from their schools catering service.
The two videos have been created starring pupils and staff from Rotherham schools and are intended to showcase the variety of healthy foods on offer and to give an insight of what can be expected at lunchtime. They will be especially helpful to parents of pupils just starting school and also to the pupils about to start at secondary school.

Free School Meals
If you qualify for Free School Meals your son/daughter will be able to receive their meal every day without other students being aware. The cashless systems operating at secondary schools automatically provide a cash credit every day to all qualifying students.
At primary schools once a parent/carer has been notified of entitlement to free meals then just let your school administration team know your son/daughter requires a school meal.
