From 6th September all pupils will be eating in the hall with a family dining service at the Older Years Site and in the hall with a choice of two hot main meals on the Younger Years Site.
We have worked with Accent to develop a menu which offers two choices per day, on a three weekly cycle. There will always be a vegetarian choice. Please ensure that you have informed us if your child has any dietary requirements or allergies in advance. Please find the menus below. You can review the allergen information for each meal on the menu as well.

Catering Coffee Morning - Wednesday 8th December
Thank you to all the parents that came to OYS on Wednesday for our Accent Catering Coffee Morning. We had over 30 parents join us (in person!) and tasted the chicken curry with rice, traditional Italian lasagne, vegetarian lasagne, falafel and pitta bread and salsa, and margherita pizza followed by shortbread biscuits and lemon drizzle cake. The feedback was so useful and lots of parents were very happy with the choices on offer. It was an incredible opportunity to share some of the dishes with parents of younger and older years pupils. Parents were very grateful and gave lots of positive feedback.
- “The best curry I’ve ever eaten”
- “The lasagne is delicious”
- “The vegetarian lasagne is very good”
- “I don’t know why they complain, it’s all delicious! Now I know!”
We have made a decision to take off the falafel and Quorn burgers for the January menu based on parental feedback. The Quorn burgers were not on the original menu but due to Brexit there have been many issues with the delivery of food items. This has meant that sometimes the menus have had to change last minute. We will endeavour to inform you if this is ever the case long term.
A huge thank you to Catherine, our OYS chef, for putting this on for our parents and to Gloria, our YYS chef and Accent for their ongoing hard work to provide such nutritious and delicious meals for our pupils despite all the barriers this term has given us!
We run termly virtual coffee mornings where parents are welcome to give feedback to Ian Harman, the Accent Catering Manager - all parents are welcome!
