School Dinners

 

Here at Belmore School we aim to provide children and staff with a variety of healthy nutritious meals that taste as good as they look and form an essential part of a healthy balanced diet. In partnership with Dolce we offer a variety of fresh seasonal food prepared on site based on modern ethnically diverse dishes that provide a contemporary twist on conventional school meals.

The cost of a school dinner will be £2.15 per day (£10.75 per week). Payment needs to be made through your SchoolGrid Account

Healthy Eating

As our understanding of food evolves, as well as the tastes of those we serve, we aim to offer both a popular meal choice and an experience that helps children and young adults adventure in food. Science is providing new insights into the effects of nutrition on our health, as well as the food choices we make in our early years. By providing popular and relevant menus that are created using the best quality ingredients, as well as training and supporting staff, we can produce the same consistent high quality on every plate. This provides a positive platform from which children can grow and learn.

Choices

We believe in choice whatever the time of day and this term's menu can be downloaded from link at the bottom of this page. All the options provide excellent value for money. Menus change seasonally with each new term and favourites feature alongside new, innovative dishes. Themed menus celebrate different cultures and offer students an opportunity to sample foods from other countries/cultures. Each month we feature theme days for the children to enjoy check out our annual calendar and monthly theme days advertised on the website.

Lunch

A delicious selection of freshly prepared homemade hot and cold food is available. Choose a main meal or a vegetarian dish, jacket potato along with freshly baked bread.

When it comes to desserts all of our sponges and cookies are made on the premises from fresh ingredients not mixes. Low fat yoghurt and fresh fruit feature widely on our menus helping children to achieve that goal of “five a day” fruit & vegetables.
