School Dinners

New Lunch Menu starting 8 March 2021

This is the menu the children will be having due to COVID-19, it is a reduced menu.  We will be collecting the food from the dining hall and the children will be eating in their classrooms.   This will be the same menu for ALL year groups.




The link below will allow parents to have access to the allergen matrix, nutritional content of each dish, any competitions the school kitchens are running, recipes of new items on the menu and special diet forms.






I am the Area Manager for the Overdale infants  and Juniors school and  have been working very closely with the schools to tailor the menu to suit the needs of the pupils , the changes were implemented from feedback from the Schools.


As the new menu highlights as a  caterer we now hold the Gold Catering Mark and we are one of 3  Local Authorities in the County to do so and this is something we are very proud of,  we have spent a lot of time with our dietetic team ensuring our  menu meets the Food Standards .


I have enclosed the guidelines we follow when designing our menu to fit the Gold catering mark – regarding Organic meat and meat free days .


All of our meat is Farm Assured and we are working on a provenance sheet that will highlight what is in our recipes and where the meat and ingredients are sourced .


At Overdale the pupils choose their meal in the Classroom this has increased uptake and also reduced waste , this ensures the pupils are receiving their preferred option.


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any more information.


Kind regards
