Plant based menu options are available via parental request in all Primary Schools. If a vegetarian option is not arranged in advance then we are always able to provide a filled jacket potato, salad or baguette. Please see the attached Primary sector menus.


Secondary Schools and All Through Schools

A selection of plant based menu options are available daily or the full menu is available on request in all Secondary and All Through Schools. Please see the below link to menus.

Residential Services

Any individual accessing either our learning disability respite or elderly residential service, who has specific dietary requirements whether these are personal choice or health related, would have the opportunity to disclose these during an initial assessment process. As a service we would endeavour to meet the requirements, menus would be adapted to cater for such needs . If an individual lacks the capacity to inform us of such choices ,we would explore this further with families, parents/carers or individuals who have a better degree of knowledge relating to the persons personal choices.
