Pabulum provides the catering at Blair Peach Primary School. Our menus are compliant with The School Food Plan and over 94% of our dishes are freshly prepared from unprocessed ingredients by our professional chefs.
Available every day and made fresh in our kitchen we offer:
- A choice of meat/fish or vegetarian main meal
- Unlimited salad bar with eight delicious choices
- Jacket potato or pasta
- Two choices of unlimited freshly baked wholemeal bread
- Homemade dessert
- Fresh mixed fruit platter
- Homemade yoghurt or mousse
To help both children, parents and carers plan meal times in advance we provide a ‘rhythm’ to our menus:
- Monday – Italian
- Tuesday – Curry
- Wednesday – Traditional Roast
- Thursday – Great British Classics
- Friday – Fish & Chips (vegetarian option available)
The Pabulum dining experience gives every child time to enjoy our fresh food offer, whilst encouraging children to try delicious new dishes and rewarding them with a Healthy Bunch sticker or certificate.
Pabulum goes beyond the fresh food dining experience; our initiatives engage and inspire to help develop a deeper appreciation of food through parents evenings, playground taster sessions, food assemblies and cookery demonstrations.

Free School Meals Entitlement
Please note the following list as a guideline for parents who may be able to apply for free school meals for their children. If you are affected by any of the following benefits/allowances, we would strongly encourage you to apply:

If you would like to find out if you are entitled to receive free school meals for your child, please speak to a member of staff in the school office. We are now able to check from the school to see if your child is eligible to receive free school meals, all we need is the information listed below.
Child’s name, class and date of birth
Name of parent who is claiming the benefit, date of birth, address, mobile telephone number, list of benefits and National Insurance Number
Please note that schools rely heavily on funding from the government and a significant amount is dependent on the number of children in our school who are entitled to receive free school meals. For each child who is eligible for free school meals, the school will receive a total of £1,320 for the academic year 2018/2019. Please apply even if your child at present prefers to have a packed lunch.
