Parent Consultation: School Dinners Meal Options 

From Monday, 25th April, we will be working with a new school dinner catering provider called Relish. Relish are already working with a number of local schools in Derby and Derbyshire, including several schools within our DDAT school family.

Relish are committed to providing quality, fresh ingredients that they cook from scratch to produce their daily menus. Wherever possible, they use seasonal produce, and their daily food offer will allow our children to choose from a wide variety of freshly prepared main meals and desserts.

We are currently in the process of finalising our plans with Relish and would like to gather your views and opinions on our daily menu food options. We will continue to offer two daily options (meat and vegetarian), however, Relish are able to provide HFA halal meat as our daily meat option. Further information about HFA halal meat, including frequently asked questions, can be viewed here.

This means that all children having a school dinner could be offered a daily:

  •        meat option (HFA halal)
  •        vegetarian option

 To offer you as parents the chance to share your views on this, we would like to carry out a two-week parent consultation. You are invited to fill out our online survey, please click hereOur consultation will close at 9am on Monday, 4th April.

We value your thoughts and look forward to hearing your views and opinions.
