Our catering service has been modified in response to Covid-19 guidance. We hope to return to our usual service, as below, as soon as possible.
Our Commitment

We are all aware that, for a child to take full advantage of their learning opportunities, they need to have a well-balanced & healthy diet.

Daily servings of fresh fruit & vegetables.


Predominantly home-cooked dishes, using Fresh, seasonal ingredients.

Desserts to always include a fresh fruit or yoghurt alternative.

Sugar content reduced by the use of natural sweeteners in food.

Low fat spreads & semi-skimmed milk available as an alternative to full fat variety.


Cooking practices are aimed at minimising fat content – including trimming fat, using lean cuts of meat, grilling & oven baking, as well as the minimal loss of nutrients like vitamin C in vegetables.


Our menus run on a three week cycle and are bespoke to Five Ways. They are nutritionally analysed. We also do a daily special, a snack item, pasta dish and jacket potatoes.


We also offer a wide selection of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps with various fillings from our Deli Range.

Our menus operate on a
three week cycle,
