Solihull Catering Services
As a local authority caterer we are committed to ensuring those children in vulnerable groups across our schools are catered for in this unprecedented situation in relation to Covid-19
We would like to reassure both our children and parents that these groups will continue to be catered for during this period of time. We are already in the position of being able to produce, from central locations a packed lunch provision and delivery service to your school for both free school meal pupils and those that will remain in school due to parents being key workers.
Your schools will be communicating with you directly in terms of distribution but please be assured as the catering provider to your schools this service will continue for as long as it is required.
Our award winning school meals in Solihull have never tasted better and we are proud to offer pupils across the borough a great range of delicious, healthy meals, using locally sourced, high quality ingredients.
We do not serve fizzy drinks or chocolate bars and do not serve fried foods more than twice a week.
Primary school meals
Primary school pupils get a choice of two main courses, a vegetarian option, a salad bar, jacket potatoes and a choice of breads. We also offer a dessert, yogurt, fresh fruit or a selection of dried fruit.
A 2 course primary school meal currently costs £2.20. Parents can choose to pay weekly, half-termly or termly and most schools can now accept payments online.
Currently Solihull Catering Service are offering three menu options. Please check with individual schools to see which menu is currently in operation at your child’s school. The requirement for the different menu options are due to the covid -19 restrictions which differ from school to school.
