As you will know, CATERed, the school lunch provider at your child’s school is a cooperative trading company owned by the schools (your child’s school) and the council. CATERed was set up in 2015 to ensure that all schools (as shareholders) could provide great tasting school dinners and also to ensure that budgets for school food were spent on school food without impacting on others areas of school funding. Over 80% of our meals are cooked from scratch each and every day in your schools’ own production kitchen using locally sourced, seasonal and fresh ingredients.
Students may be entitled to a free school meal based on household income. If you think you may be entitled to a free school meal talk directly to your school or visit the Plymouth City Council web pages on the link below.
Great recipes using your Free School Meal parcel
Registering for free school meals will also help your child’s school with additional funding through the Pupil Premium which will be used to support education and learning.
Thank you for your continued support.
Managing Director on behalf of the CATERed Board
