We are committed to promoting healthy eating for all learners and aim to support them to eat a balanced lunch and best prepare them for learning. We ensure that the menus offer a variety of appealing dishes, enabling learners to easily choose a healthy lunch.
Learners are encouraged to taste and eat new foods. Staff are encouraged to eat a school lunch and sit with learners in the dining hall as it is recognised that eating together is an excellent way to forge relationships.
Breakfast and lunch are provided, free of charge to all learners.
At our Hindley site, all meals are cooked fresh each day. At lunchtime, learners have the choice of a hot mail course accompanied by at least 2 choices of vegetable or a different light bite each day (pizza, jacket potato & filling, toasted sandwich, panini or soup & crusty bread) plus a daily dessert. Daily choices also a variety of fresh salads and fruit. We try to have a slightly different menu every week during each half term, reflecting what learners feedback has been.
At our Whelley site, light bite lunches are prepared onsite, with other meals being delivered fresh each day from a local café.
