Here at Rivelin, we are proud to be in partnership with Taylor Shaw who provide our children with good quality, healthy and fresh food every day. Taylor Shaw work on site in our kitchen, preparing food from a bespoke menu approved by our school council and Executive Head.
Taylor Shaw's dietitians and cooks ensure our meals are nutritionally balanced, creative and appealing to children, to meet all the requirements of the Department of Education School Food Standards. These came into force in 2015 to ensure children eat well at school.
Taylor Shaw promise to work in close conjunction with parents and carers of pupils with medical dietary requirements to ensure that their individual needs are met. With the help of parents and carers providing detailed information regarding dietary needs of their child, Taylor Shaw can create a specific menu, catering to their additional needs.
If your child is interested in having school meals in school and have additional dietary requirements, it is the parent/carers responsibility to contact Taylor Shaw who will begin the easy process of creating a specific menu.
Below you will find useful information regarding medical & dietary information, along with Taylor Shaw's contact number and our weekly menus.
School Meal Infomation
In line with School Food Service & Sheffield City Council, parents and carers are obliged to pay for their child's school dinners, currently at £2 a day. This charge will incur when your child reaches Y3. Years FS2-Y2 are entitled to Universal free school meals, meaning their meals are funded for by the council.
Meals must be paid for in advance via your child's school gateway account. This allows you to top up their account straight from your app and will take affect instantly.
