Great tasting food that your children will love
Aspens is the company chosen by your school to provide the meal service to our students. We specialise in providing catering to schools and colleges across the country.
The food children eat at school plays an important role in their wellbeing, and eating a well-balanced diet will not only maintain and improve their health, but will also set them on the right track for later life. We understand this and that’s why we are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
At Aspens – we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All our 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, we want our customers to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey. Don’t think that your child can’t enjoy our great food if they have a special diet – they are an important part of our catering service. We can provide food if they have an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative 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 our customers talk to us, so we can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for them to eat.
Free school meals
All children that are in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to receive UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEALS! We think it’s a fantastic idea so please make sure you support this initiative. Not only will you be saving money, but you will also be giving your child a nutritionally balanced meal to fuel their bodies for the rest of their learning day.
Please note this is not to be confused with FREE SCHOOL MEALS which is an entitlement that some children can receive due to their parents/carer’s circumstances. If you have an older child and feel you may be entitled to receive FREE SCHOOL MEALS, you should request the relevant forms from your school office. www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals
Great value for money
We have a range of meal deals on offer every day to help save money. Whether they want a hot meal or something to just grab and go, there will be an offer available. We also run a range guest offers and special theme days to create a buzz in the dining room.
The Aspens App
This is ideal for parents and students to check out what’s on offer for lunch with just a couple of presses on your smartphone. It’s simple enough – just search for the app at the App Store, install, add the unique PIN relating to your particular school and you will be able to view the current menu. Ask a member of the team or at the school office for your number.
