School Meals

School meals may be obtained at school, provided by Mellors Catering Company. A cafeteria service is available offering full cooked meals in the Café Olé. Students may bring a packed lunch if they wish. A Snack Bar is open during morning break and there is a breakfast service available before school.

Our Food Hygiene Rating is 5 (highest possible score) - which was awarded following an unannounced visit from the Environmental Inspecting Officer for Sheffield City Council in November 2023.

It is considered to be in the best interest of the students, particularly from the point of view of safety that lunches are taken at school. Any other arrangements to which parents wish to give their approval, should be indicated by writing to the school. Co-operation in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Confidential arrangements are made for those students entitled to free school meals.

We encourage all students to eat healthily, which includes having five portions of fruit or vegetables each day. There is a 'meal deal' offer every day, subsidised by the Government, providing a well-balanced meal.

Mellors Catering Services

Mellors are award winning Contract Caterers. A family business which caters for over 240 schools in the north of England. All meals are made onsite, from scratch daily.

Our school counters are packed full of choice and we encourage all of our pupils to eat a rainbow of fruit and vegetables.

If you are currently paying for your child’s school meals, you could make savings of around £404 per year, if your child qualifies for free school meal.

At Mellors, not only do we want to provide your child with a nutritious meal, we want them to have fun! Whether its National baking week or Best of British, we will run themes to bring something new to the table for your child to try. Beyond the dining room, Mellors Development Chefs offer classes to teach children the basics of cooking. Danielle, Head of Nutrition and Food Development, delivers assemblies in schools on the importance of making healthy choices. She’ll even get them on the smoothie bike to whizz up some drinks for the class. We also have the Mellors Big Red Bus that can visit our schools to provide a truly unique dining experience!
