New School Year 2015-2016 – buying meals

To all our valued customers – if you are buying meals it is the beginning of the new school year so, if you haven’t done so already, you will need to re-enter your children(s) details with the correct school / year / class information. You can login as normal. We are available on 0208 663 6686 to answer any queries or questions.


Eating well

Delivering nutritional value

Principals use a software programme, called CRISp to calculate the nutritional value of the raw ingredients used in our dishes. We can analyse the value of each menu, allowing us to phase in new
dishes easily, whilst maintaining the nutritional balance. Menus include all kinds of international, regional and ethnic choices, without forgetting, of course, an extensive range of traditional favourites.

Fresh is best

Principals purchase only top quality meat, fruit, fish and vegetables, from the local area.

‘Home’ cooking

The best ingredients in the world still need skillful cooking to become an appetising meal. At Principals, our management team work hard to reflect each schools food requirements. Each catering
team is trained to consistently produce and present the agreed menus. We also have several senior chefs who will continually visit to help develop and ensure the best practice is maintained.
