We are excited to be working with Enhance Academy Trust in their schools in Kirklees and Wakefield. As the leading provider of high quality school meals in the region, Kirklees Catering Service (KCS) are the recipe for great school meals.
We have been continually innovating to ensure that we meet and exceed the government nutritional standards outlined in the School Food Plan. KCS have been awarded the prestigious Silver ‘Catermark’ accreditation from the Food for Life organisation which means you can be assured that the food we serve in your child’s school is:
Healthy / Free-Range / Sustainable / Fresh Local / Seasonal / Organic / Traceable
More than this, we recognise that success is not just about the food on the plate. A number of key ingredients need to blend together to ensure every lunchtime experience is fun, educational, nutritious and stimulating.
The vital ingredient is our relationship with schools, students and parents, ensuring we provide you with a catering service designed to reflect the tastes of today’s young people.
Hello from your school caterers - Kirklees Catering Services welcome letter
School meals offer excellent value and cost only £2.50 per meal (£12.50 per week).
There are some circumstances where your child will be automatically eligible for free lunches, regardless of your family’s financial situation:
- In England, all infant school pupils (every child in reception class, year 1 & 2) in state funded schools can get a free lunch.
If your child is not in those year groups your child might still qualify for free school meals if you are claiming certain benefits and are on a low income.
