At Hardwick Green, school meals are provided by Mellors catering. There is a fantastic selection of hot and cold food each day. There is always a hot main meal with meat, hot vegetarian choice, jacket potato with tuna, cheese and/or beans or a cold sandwich. There is also a wide variety of puddings each day. Children choose their meal each morning so that we can make sure they always get their choice. You can see our current menus here:

School meals cost £2.25 and this needs to be paid for on Parent Pay. In September, children in Year 3 who now have to pay for their meals have a special offer where school meals only cost £1.50.
