Grow are a supportive and nurturing community using nutritious ingredients to fuel young minds encouraging children to flourish.
Child development happens at a remarkable rate, our aim is to develop knowledge through variety and interest, giving pupils the get up and go they deserve.
We are not just your caterer, we want to be part of your vision. Grow gives children the confidence they need to build on and expand their knowledge of health and diet. We aim to encourage children to explore a variety of different foods, forming a healthy view on eating habits from day one.
We believe in fuelling young minds, creating the foundations for a happy and healthy lifestyle. Primary schools have important contributions to make towards future health and well-being, alongside parents and carers. Grow is here to help create a supportive environment to do this, whilst providing wholesome top-quality food.
Meals are pre booked and are prepared each morning using fresh ingredients. ABM Catering Limited are able to offer a range of foods to cater for all dietary requirements. There are a number of options on our menu including a main meal, a vegetarian option, a Jacket Potato and a Sandwich Deli – all served with a self-serve salad bar, hot or cold pudding, or a selection of fruit. We encourage all children to try our hot meals when starting at Hagley Primary. Throughout the academic year, there are a number of theme days to link the menu with the curriculum, bringing the classroom into the lunch hall in a fun and interactive way.
If you choose to provide a packed lunch, please ensure that this is in a suitable container. Children will need to ensure they bring their own drink. No glass bottles or fizzy drinks please.
For children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2, all hot meals are provided through the Universal Free School Meals Scheme. For children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6, all hot meals are booked via an online payment system.
Applications for free school meals for children in KS2 are based on parental income. Forms are available from the school office.
Lunchtimes in the hall – There is a team of lunchtime supervisors on duty throughout the lunch break. The children are encouraged, but never forced, to finish their meal. We encourage self-service and good table manners, but they are allowed to relax and talk just as adults do during the meal.
