The Catering Team at The Willows

The catering team at The Willows are committed to serving the children a healthy and nutritious meal.  All menus offer a wide selection of home made dishes prepared in our own kitchen using fresh ingredients daily.  At The Willows we are able to cater for specific diets which are required for medical, religious or cultural reasons.

We are a healthy school and ask that parent/carers send their child to school with a suitable packed lunch including a sandwich, a piece of fruit or some vegetables and a drink.  Please do not send your child with canned drinks or drinks contained in glass bottles.
