The Pantry - School Lunches

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new Catering Company, The Pantry, our new school meals provider.  As of September, The Pantry will be providing your children’s lunch time meals, introducing our high standard of food backed by The Soil Associations’ Food for Life Silver standard, ensuring all of The Pantry’s ingredients come from the very best sources.


You can expect to see Red Tractor meat served as standard, RSPCA assured eggs and a host of organic ingredients on our menu, meaning your children will be eating the very best of fresh, sustainable, and high-quality products.


The Pantry are an independently owned business, whose journey started as a sandwich shop on Hayes High Street in 2006. Now, they proudly partner with around 60 schools, known in our industry as delivering the highest standards of school food backed with innovative technology systems.


You will soon be receiving details about our meal ordering process, which differs to the one you are used to. We know change is sometimes difficult, but we aim to make this process as smooth as possible for each parent and pupil. You will soon be booking meals via a smartphone enabled website, allowing you to place your orders in-day until 09:00 every morning!  They will be out in force at the start of the contract, so if you see them around, stop for a chat about the service, they are happy to talk about the great things they do!


School Meal price will be £2.18
