Abbey School Catering

Fresh Food Daily

Abbey School lunches are made in-house by our Catering Manager who has been creating lunches for our pupils in Abbey School and Holiday Clubs for over 25 years. He really knows what children enjoy!

To give them the energy they need for the afternoon sessions it is very important that children eat at lunchtime, rather than simply push food around their plates. That is why (with the noted exception of ‘chips’ and the unspeakable ‘turkey twizlers’, which we have never served) we offer food that children enjoy eating. Weekly menus, that over time have become proven ‘hits’ with our pupils, are published on the school notice boards.

Food Standards Agency 5* Rating


Following a recent inspection In September 2016 the School has been awarded a 5* Rating by the Food Standards Agency for the quality of our food, hygiene of our kitchen areas and training of our catering staff and food handlers.

We are very proud of our 5* rating and continue to uphold only the very best standards in this area, ensuring that all Abbey School children receive high quality nutritious meals daily.

Special Dietary Needs

Our catering team are pleased to prepare separate dishes for children with particular dietary, social or religious requirements and if such matters affect your child, please come into school and discuss your specific needs with our catering manager.

If we are not already aware of your particular requirements or how to prepare the special meals that your child needs, for the benefit of your child we are very happy to learn from you, so call in and discuss what is needed and work with us until we can confidently provide your child with what is required. If you can do it, we can do it, even if we might need your help for a while at first.

What parents say about our school

Abbey Nursery is more than just 'childcare', as a parent I appreciate the consistency and experience of the teachers, and they way they really get to know the children as individuals, working with you as a parent to ensure the very best for each child, whatever their needs or abilities might be.

Jo Spurle

For us as parents, Abbey has made memories to cherish from the daily written descriptions of what Andrew has been up to, to cheering him along on his first sports day and on stage in the nursery play. Abbey nursery is, quite simply, a very special place.
