Worsthorne Primary School Lunches

Serving fantastic lunches everyday! All menus are planned to comply with School Food Standards and all new dishes are tested by children. Our meat is Red Tractor Farm Assured, our fish is MSC certified, our eggs are free-range Lion brand and we also use a number of organic products throughout the menu. There is always fresh fruit and salad, bread and locally produced yoghurt available daily.

 

To make the most of seasonal produce we change our menus a minimum of twice a year.

Whilst every effort is made to produce the published menus, please note that they may vary occasionally subject to availability and individual school requirements. All our menus are checked using a recognised programme to analyse nutrition. We also work with Lancashire Healthy Schools and support the Change 4 Life campaign. The result is a menu your child will enjoy and that will prepare them for learning in the afternoon.

Our aim is to produce healthy and nutritious meals with menus which positively influence the food choices of our children and young people, always considering where the food we put on our plates comes from and how it was produced.

Special diets and allergens

Special diets are diets for pupils with a medically diagnosed requirement; not just a dislike of certain foods or food groups. It is our policy to provide a service for those pupils with medically diagnosed food allergies, food intolerance’s or a medical condition which affects eating requirements.

Please contact your school office in the first instance to inform them of your child’s requirements.
