Your school lunches are provided by award-winning caterers HC3S.
At HC3S, our ethos is about tasty food to help your children flourish. And to do that it helps if they eat a healthy diet. By providing nutritious food, cooked fresh every day and which is responsibly sourced, we give your children a balanced diet with choices that aid concentration levels and give them energy to focus and to play.
But we go a step further. We also want children to understand about healthy lifestyles and take this positive message into adulthood. That’s why we’ve created a ripple (not just raspberry) with our ‘Ready Steady Cook’ sessions which are fun and engaging and why we introduced the ‘Food to Flourish Classroom’ to help teachers educate children using food in a way that cuts across the curriculum.
Where opportunity arises, we bring live cooking and workshops to the classroom and sometimes, out of the classroom, through partnerships with our suppliers and other local food organisations. We love schools to join in our celebrations for Nutrition and Hydration Week, British Food Fortnight, and National School Meals Week as key events in the food and drink calendar which are lots of fun.
Special Diet Application
It is the responsibility of parents to provide accurate information relating to any allergies/special diets that their child may have/require and that this is backed up with medical evidence. Children who do have medical needs will usually be under the care of a clinician and parents should, therefore, be able to provide information confirming this.
Medical reasons will always be required confirming the child’s allergy/intolerance and must specify what food item/group is to be removed from the menu.
Applications for medical special dietary needs should be made using form Medically Identified Special Diet Application (HC300) available to download from https://www.hants.gov.uk/
Please download the document below to help with this process.

Once the application has been completed and signed by a GP/Dietician, parents are required to take the form into the school admin office to scan over to HC3S office. Separate medical evidence should not be sent in as this will not meet with our Data Protection policy.
