Healthy Schools

At Whitecote, we understand how important it is for pupils to enjoy their school lunches.  We have spent time and effort to ensure that our menus are varied, tasty and nutritious. The majority of our meals are homemade on site, with an emphasis being put on fresh food. We use local suppliers and local produce whenever possible.

We know how difficult it is to encourage children into making a healthy choice, Mrs Waring and Mrs Duckworth (our school cooks) are friendly and will encourage your child to make a healthy choice. Our catering provider, Leeds Catering Service, provide a menu for Whitecote with 3 or 4 choices each day.  Two hot meals (one of these is vegetarian) and a sandwich option are available daily.  A baked potato option is available most days. We operate a band system to ensure children are able to select and receive the meal they want each morning.

Theme Days and Special Occasion days run during the term so look out for advertised changes. Each of these school lunch menus meet the food and nutrient guidelines set by the Government and Leeds City Council.

We are able to cater for all medical and religious diets and vegetarian options are available daily.
