School Meals Menu

Our school meals are provided by Caterlink. We were impressed by the quality of food they provide and their commitment to high quality and locally sourced ingredients.

The new Autumn Winter Menu was launched on 1st November, this being week one of the three week cycle.

Caterlink’s menus are nutritionally balanced, full of local flavours and tailored to suit our school. They not only meet, but exceed government guidelines. They will bring lots of fresh ideas to help our students understand healthy eating habits.

Students will purchase food at school and parents can use the SCOPay app for topping up accounts. Please email dow-admin@cset.co.uk if you need any support with accessing your child’s/children’s account.
