Primary School Meals

Providing over 25,000 primary school meals every day in East Anglia, our food ethos is, and has always been, for high-quality, local ingredients freshly prepared by happy and well-trained catering teams.

Primary School Menus

Research by Children’s Food Trust has shown that if children eat better, they perform better in school. Our meals are created using local and seasonal produce, wherever possible. We have our own Dietitian and Menu Development Team to ensure we fully comply with school food standards and we work closely with student councils to ensure our menus appeal to children.

It’s not just about the food on the plate, we believe we are helping create positive memories for children and we work in partnership with schools to provide hands-on learning and fun through food.


Our Food

Our menu is a two-week menu and offers two delicious hot main meal options every day – one of which is always vegetarian – and a packed lunch option as well. It has been created to allow a flexible approach for how it is served and where it is eaten; whether that’s in a dining room, in a classroom or even in an outside space. Every Wednesday is ‘Roast Day’ and Friday’s are the one day a week we serve chips!

We are also a bronze food for life provider, which means:

  • At least 75% of the food we offer is prepared from scratch
  • All the meat we serve is Red Tractor assured
  • The fruit and vegetables we serve are seasonal and locally grown, wherever possible
  • Our food is free from GM ingredients, trans fats and undesirable additives

Norse Catering COVID-19 Response

We are working with schools to ensure children have access to a nutritious two-course lunch and that your child’s experience of school meals from September is positive, enjoyable and that they feel safe eating our food. We are also committed to ensuring our catering staff feel safe, supported and happy when working in school kitchens.

Safety is of utmost importance and, while our catering teams are used to high levels of hygiene and cleanliness, we have implemented enhanced measures and risk assessments in all of our kitchens in line with Public Health England and Food Standards Agency guidelines.

Our menu for September consists of lots of popular items and dishes that allow for a flexible approach to how it is served and where it is eaten; whether that’s in the dining room, in a classroom or even in an outside space! Please speak to your child’s school to see what their individual plans are for September.

As we adjust to a new style of school catering, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
