Hampshire Education Catering is the catering partner chosen to provide nutritious and tasty meals at Wherwell Primary School, preparing meals in our dedicated kitchen facility on site. We cater for many different tastes, serving a mix of British classics and foods from around the world. We know that a nutritious lunch full of fresh ingredients will help your child to succeed.

Our teams are passionate about making healthy eating fun. Year group assemblies, visits with suppliers and our ever-popular theme days are just a few of the ways that we can get involved.

By supporting the curriculum in this way, we encourage children to develop positive eating habits from an early age. These skills will serve them well on their journey through school and beyond.

With over 30 years of school catering experience, our successful ethos is to provide healthy, local, responsible sourced food that children love. Our tasty, freshly cooked, nutritious dishes help your children flourish and reach their potential. As part of a balanced diet, our lunches provide a third of a child’s daily calorie intake, to aid concentration levels and give them energy to focus and to play.

We know that providing award-winning meals isn’t enough and so, at Education Catering we go that step further, by helping schools and the wider community to encourage children, parents, carers to live healthy lifestyles and think sustainably.

Where opportunity arises, we bring live cooking and food related workshops to the classrooms. Sometimes, through partnerships with our suppliers and other local food organisations, outside of the classroom, creating sensory-filled memorable experiences.

All KS1 children eat for free under the Universal Infant Free School Meals Scheme. Some families may also qualify for Free School Meals, which attracts extra funding to help the school support your child in many ways. KS2 children pay just £3.00 for their tasty, hot, nutritious meal.
