School Meals Information

 

In December 2014, new allergen legislation came into force, and from January 2015 the new Food Standards became mandatory. Our menus are fully compliant with the latest legislation and guidance.

 

SIPS, our catering company, have trained our catering staff to be aware of the changes to the legislation and competent at meeting the requirements. If you require any further information please speak to a member of our catering team.
