At Cheadle Hulme Primary School our catering services are provided by Aspens, one of the market leaders who provide catering and support services to schools throughout the UK.

In our school kitchen all of our food is prepared fresh every day. We know it’s not just the food on the plate that is important but a real understanding of health and nutrition too.

We’re committed to helping to develop great eating habits in our pupils by providing nutritious, tasty and tantalising dishes of current food favourites all freshly prepared by the onsite catering team. All of our menus offer a carefully comprised mix of nutritional and tasty food, which is compliant to government legislation. We also take special care to ensure pupils, staff and visitors with dietary requirements are catered for.

It is possible for pupils to bring a packed lunch if they would prefer.

Each school has a unique web page with links to their menu and the PIN number for the Aspens App.
