At Brown Clee we are very privileged to have our own catering facilities, preparing and cooking school meals every day. Our school meals include a range of freshly prepared and seasonal recipes, making them a great healthy option for children.
Why not give them a try this term? The cost of this service is £2.30 per meal, free to those children entitled to UFSM and FSM (see below)
Making a small change to your everyday food and drinks can save a surprising amount of fat, sugar and calories. All of our menus have the option of a low-fat organic fruit yoghurt, cheese and biscuits or fresh fruit for pudding.
When you start school, you will be given the school menu which shows the meals that are being prepared on a rotation. The menu always reflect the seasons with different vegetables and fruit on offer.
