Charlton School

At the heart of what we do is our passion for great tasting, healthy, locally sourced food. Menus are driven by our customers’ feedback and our extensive experience in the Education sector.
All our dishes are supported with recipes and prepared by craft trained staff and Shire Services have been awarded the ‘food for life’ Bronze Catering Mark from the Soil Association which is your guarantee that we provide high quality, fresh food that you can trust.
  • 75% of meals are freshly prepared on site
  • 50% of produce is locally sourced
  • All eggs are free range
  • All meat satisfies UK animal welfare standards
We ensure a variety of nutritious meal deals and menu items are available every day and we offer a choice of unlimited vegetables and portioned salads to accompany our meals. All fish served is Marine Stewardship Certified and we only use Red Tractor chicken
Our recipe and menu development process demonstrates our commitment to reduce the use of saturated fats, sugar and salt. Fresh whole fruit and chunky fruit pots and bags are always available at a competitive price along with crackers and cheese as an alternative to a sweet dessert or a cookie
A selection of school compliant drinks are on offer to all our customers with the price of bottled water held at a low price to encourage take-up
Shire Services embraces the expectation for a ‘full dining experience’ and do this by creating food courts within school dining areas. This offers a range of healthy high street concept menus, which reflect the food on offer in the high street and ensures satisfaction of all our customers
