Lunchtime Arrangements/Free School Meals/Parent Pay

A hot meals service is available for pupils at DSLV  through Aspens.  They specialise  n providing catering to schools and colleges across the country.

Aspens have a fantastic range to choose from and they make sure that they serve the variety of food that children like and want to eat. It’s not all about eating vegetables and fruit - although they do make sure we get our balance right!

Responsible catering

At Aspens -they take their responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of their dishes are prepared everyday using quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients that are responsibly sourced.

As well as ensuring the food on the plate is healthy, they want their customers to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey.

Special diets and food allergens

Don’t think great food can’t be enjoyed if you have a special diet.  Aspens can provide food an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.

Legislation requires caterers to provide allergen information on food sold that is served ‘unpackaged’. Aspens already cater for lots of children with allergies and we regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. It is still important that their customers talk to them so they can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for them to eat.
