Information is current as of 1st January 2020.
Alderbrook School works in close partnership with Solihull Catering Services to produce meals at breakfast, mid-morning break and lunch time that are amongst the best in the borough. Our menus can be found in the links below.
We provide an efficient and consistent service and provide separate hot and cold food service areas which give us the opportunity to serve a wider range of foods including baguettes, sandwiches, wraps, pasta dishes and jacket potatoes with various fillings. A choice of seasonal hot main meals is available every day with the majority of food items on the menu prepared from fresh raw ingredients in the school kitchens. We know what goes in to our foods; students can then sit down to enjoy their food in the light and airy dining room.
We are also proud of our “Food Cube” which allows students to access high-quality food “on the go” in Malley playground.
Breakfast club remains a firm favourite at Alderbrook, this is a quiet time of the day where students can meet and enjoy breakfast with their friends before the start of the school day. The long term health and learning benefits of breakfast have been proved in numerous recent studies and can help students to form good eating habits for life.
Alderbrook’s Catering Team is also very proud to have won an award for their hard work and new ideas to increase school meal uptake. The school enjoys a high take up of school meals that is mainly due to the innovative schemes introduced by Unit Catering Manager Kate Cave, a previous LACA Award winner and her extremely creative team. The team has worked with enthusiasm and commitment to promote and raise awareness of healthy eating and its benefits to young people in school.
Our menus are different every day and include fish, meat and vegetarian options to ensure we cater for everyone. In addition to this we can produce foods for students who have special dietary or cultural needs; please talk to the catering manager Kate Cave for further information or indeed about your child’s diet on 0121 704 2258.
