Confused by Catering?

Am I externally catered for?
Does your local authority or a private catering company manage your school kitchen or deliver hot meals to the school? Then your school is externally catered for.

Am I catered for in-house?
Does your school self-manage its catering service? Do you employ your own team, create your own menus, and manage the ordering process? If so you’re an in-house school.

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