Our menu and prices
Fussy about food? We are! Variety is the spice of life here at CATERed and we pride ourselves on making sure we supply a menu to satisfy even the choosiest of eaters.
Our menus are seasonal and we change them twice each year so please make sure you check this page regularly to see our latest menus.
Some schools opt for menus specifically designed with their children in mind:
Secondary School menu
The price of our school lunch has once again been held recognising the current economic climate; with the service offering excellent value for money and being amongst the lowest priced in the region comparing very favourably with other authorities and providers across the south west.
The price of a school meal in Plymouth is:
- Infant, junior, primary and special schools - £2.10 (the price includes a main course, dessert and fruit drink, milk or water).
- Secondary schools and academies - £2.40 (the price includes a main course and dessert (the meal of the day) which meets the food-based and nutrient-based standards).
To avoid disadvantaging or discriminating against any pupil or student, the available free school meal (for those registered as eligible) and the paid meal (the meal of the day) should both be available at the same value (£2.20).
A cafeteria style service is operated in secondary schools so parents/carers and students should consider that if items are selected other than the meal of the day then the total cost of the selected meal could be different to the above price.
