At Laurus Ryecroft our catering services are provided by Mellors, an award-winning family business operating in over 210 sites in the north of England.
Mellors are committed to delivering an exciting choice of hot and cold food using the finest, freshest ingredients from local suppliers. They have an in-house nutritionist who is available and able to respond to any queries and who can be contacted via the Mellors website. Vegetarian options are always available.
We cater for breakfast from 7.30am – 8.15am, mid-morning break from 10.45am – 11.05am and lunch from 1.05pm – 1.45pm where a typical hot meal with a dessert will cost approximately £2.20.
There is a Meal Deal option available at lunch which comprises any sandwich or baguette/hot meal/jacket potato + tray bake + small bottle of water. This costs £2.20. If students wish to have a juice carton, instead of water, the Meal Deal costs £2.30.
Students who benefit from free school meals can either choose from the main menu up to the value of £2.20, or choose to take the Meal Deal.
It is possible for students to bring a packed lunch. We do not allow students to be off-site at lunchtime, even with parental permission.
Please note that our canteen is cashless. All payments should now be made via ParentPay online or at a Paypoint facility. Should you require further information, please contact the school.
The default daily limit for canteen purchases is £5. Parents should email email@example.com if they would like to alter the daily limit. Students with a debt over £2.50 will not be allowed to purchase more food and we request that parents/carers monitor the balance regularly. Email and text alerts can be set up to do this by going to Profile > Alert Settings in your ParentPay account.
