WBC Warrington School Meals Catering Service

We provide the school meals and food service in all Warrington primary schools and three special schools. 

From September 2014 a new Government Legislation entitles all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to a two course school meal free of charge every day regardless of a parent’s financial status.

If your child is not in one of these year groups your child may still be entitled to free school meals - to check eligibility please telephone the Access and assets Team (which includes free school meals) on 01925 443170.

As part of the school lunch a pupil will receive a two course meal with a drink. This will include a protein item accompanied with potatoes, rice or pasta and fresh vegetables, a dessert and a drink.

All food and drinks served in Warrington schools meet the Governments standards for school food. Food is prepared on site using fresh ingredients. We do not transport food from one school to another (unless an emergency situation arises)

60% of the fruit and vegetables that we prepare and serve are grown locally (50 miles radius of Warrington).
