Re: Catering Contract
As you are aware the Trust has been in the process of tendering for a new commercial academy meals provider to take over the meals service from 1 January 2017.
I am pleased to be able to tell you that following a rigorous process Aspens Services Limited have been awarded the contract. We were impressed with the commitment Aspens showed to providing a wide range of good quality food at competitive prices. The prices for food will remain the same as they are currently with the value of free school meals and the meal deal remaining as previously advised. Payments for food will be made in the same way as before for both secondary and primary school meals. Please note for primary students if you currently pay by cheque this will need to be made payable to Aspens Services Limited.
I have made every effort to ensure the new meals provider will offer an excellent service with quality food and extensive choices from an increased number of outlets across our academy sites.
I trust your child will enjoy the new meals in the New Year.
