Confused by Catering?

Is our catering external?
If your local authority or a private catering company manage your kitchen or deliver hot meals to you, your catering is external.

Is our catering in house?
If you self-manage your catering service, employ your own team, create your own menus, and manage the ordering process, your catering is in-house.

Still not sure?
Ask your administrator / business manager or give one of our team a call on 0117 314 5180.

Do you know your URN or Ofsted number?

You will need to know your unique school URN (Unique Reference Number, also known as an Ofsted number) before completing this form. 

URN's are always 6 digits long. These numbers are not the same as your LA and Establishment Number

If you don't know your URN, or want to check it's correct you can find it here.

If you can't find your URN, please get in touch and we can help. 

Entering the wrong URN could result in your school paying for an incorrect package.
