In Derbyshire we have put a great deal of time, effort and money into creating healthy menus and promoting the healthy choices to pupils. We also want to provide parents with all the information they need about school dinners and that is why we have developed this website.
Most schools offer 2 choices of hot main meals or a jacket potato per day. The menu is on a 3 week cycle and changes every 6 months. We offer a standard portion of a main meal with vegetables, salad, bread, fresh fruit and drinking water freely available.
All medical diets are catered for, our Menu development Officer creates specialist menus to ensure each child has a meal that meets their requirements. To apply for a medical diet you must have a referral from a medical professional and complete a "medical diet form". * Links to the relevant documents are below.
All our menus meet the current Government nutritional standards.
The recommended meal price for a Primary school child is £2.20 this is excellent value for money! (Price correct from September 2020).
*Please note that sometimes our cooks have to make menu changes at short notice (for instance if there is a problem with food deliveries) but we aim to keep this to a minimum.
