School Meals

School Meals September 2014

Every child in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools will receive a free school lunch from September 2014.

The government will fund schools in England to provide every child in reception, year 1 and year 2 with a hot, nutritious meal at lunch time. The aim is to improve academic attainment and save families money – over the course of a year the average family spends £437 on school lunches per child.


Harrison Catering and Shaw Ridge School

Our objective is to provide healthy home-cooked foods, freshly prepared on site where possible and using fresh ingredients with minimal amounts of fried or processed foods. We also aim to maximise access to fruit and vegetables and offer a choice of cooked vegetables, salads, healthy snacks and fresh fruit daily.

We are a family run, independent caterer that takes pride in the freshness and quality of our food. Our purchasing policy works to limit food miles and the majority of our meat is British.
