The school is fortunate in having its own kitchen and a high standard of meals is produced by Shire Services Ltd., a private catering firm. The school hall becomes the dining hall for the lunch period and meals are served cafeteria style because of the large number involved. Pupils must bring their money each day for their meal. All dinners are priced at £2.40 and should provide your child with a satisfactory lunch.
Sandwiches may also be purchased from Shire Services or they can be brought from home and are also eaten in the Dining Hall. If a cold drink is also brought from home it must be in a plastic container - not glass or cans and should not be a fizzy drink.
PLEASE NOTE: Catshill Middle School is a 'nut-free' zone. Please do not include food containing nuts in packed lunches.
All dishes produced by the Shropshire School Meals Service meet the government's 'Nutritional Standards' and are analysed using the 'SAFFRON Nutritional Analysis System'.
The menus adhere to the daily allowance guidelines for all 14 nutrients. Statistical information is available on the Shropshire School Meals website: www.shropshire.gov.uk/schoolmeals.nsf
Meals are prepared using fresh local ingredients including organic items. Fish products meet the 'Marine Stewardship Council' standards (MSC), and the ingredients used do not contain any of the 22 additives avoided by Shropshire Council in their school meals (see the 'Food for Life' website for further information). www.foodforlife.org.uk
