The Councils main contract for the provision of Primary Phase school meals is delivered by Chartwells, who currently provide a service to a total of 194 schools. The contract was let on a 5-year term, commencing 31 July 2016, with the option for a period of up to 5 years extension. The meals provided through the contract include Free School Meals (FSM), Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM), and parent paid Key Stage two (KS2) meals.
Following extensive recent stakeholder engagement, marketplace consultations and significant supplier negotiations the County Council proposes to extend the contract with Chartwells for the available full 5-year period.
