- To provide healthy, well-balanced meals at an affordable price.
- We recognise that students learn better and concentrate if they have eaten well, and believe that every student deserves good food, produced in our very own catering kitchens on site.
- Get the day off to a good start - all of our Academies offer a free breakfast club so that no student starts the day hungry.
All dine@ menus are individually created, taking into consideration age ranges and demographics of the school catchment area – with some of the most popular dishes appearing on all 5 of our menus Trust-wide. We can provide a full nutritional analysis of our meals and specify the allergens found within our dishes.
We care about the environment and sustainability is really important to us.
We offer locally produced seasonal produce where possible and have also introduced more plant-based options. These options are more readily acceptable for different diets and cultures and therefore are more widely suitable.
Regular theme days are celebrated by dine@, which has included a range of flavours: Chinese New Year, Mexican, A Taste of Italy and A Taste of India.
