School Meals


Middleton works in partnership with Innovate, the school’s catering provider. On offer to pupils is a high quality menu that is nutritionally balanced, seasonal and designed to ensure children eat well.

The Menu

Innovate believe that quality catering and a good dining experience are key elements to the school day and contribute positively towards pupils achieving their full potential. All dishes will be prepared fresh on the premises daily using high quality ingredients, which include:

  • Main meal – a choice of meat or vegetarian/vegan option
  • Jacket potato – with a selection of toppings
  • Dessert of the day and/or a fruit option and/or yoghurt
  • Freshly baked bread
  • Deli/salad bar

The menu will follow a similar weekly pattern, so pupils know what to expect; for example, a roast dinner served every Wednesday and a curry every Thursday.

There will also be popular themed days, celebrating events such as ‘Bonfire Night’, ‘Chinese New Year’ and ‘World Book Day’, to name just a few.


All meals are booked online on the Innovate website and a ‘How to Guide’ showing exactly how to book meals can be found here:

Meals will need to be booked the Saturday of the week before, therefore we encourage parents to book their child’s meals well in advance. This will save disappointment, as we are unable to offer a school lunch if one has not been booked online.

If you have any further questions regarding school lunches, please do not hesitate to contact the School Office.
