About Us

Tasty, nutritious school meals have been provided in the Bradford district for many years. The information we’re providing via this application, means that it’s easier than ever to find out about the meals we serve in school.


The school meals at the schools shown are provided by Bradford Council’s in-house school catering provider, Facilities Management Catering Services.

How to use the school meals app

  • When you go onto the app, tap/click on the “Please select a school panel” to access the dropdown list of schools where we provide catering services.
  • Select your child’s school, and a panel of details will appear showing the school’s logo, contact details, and the food hygiene rating of the school kitchen.
  • To add a selected school to your list of favourites, tap/click on the heart symbol, which will change it from white to red. To “un-favourite” the school, tap/click on the heart symbol again, and it will change from red to white.
  • To access the menu details for a school, simply tap/click anywhere on the school details panel. This takes you straight to the menu for the current day. To see the menu on another day (whether in the future or past), just tap/click on the arrows to the left & right of the date. Alternatively tap/click on the date to bring up the the calendar control and select the required day.
  • There is information on all the day’s menu items. Just scroll up and down the list of menu options.
  • For each dish on the menu there is an image (for illustrative purposes only). There are also icons showing any allergens that are present. Tap/click on the allergen icons for more information.
  • Tap/click on the  symbol to see the nutritional breakdown for a menu item.
  • Symbols on the dish image indicate if the dish is halal vegetarian or vegan
  • If you only want to display a particular type of dish, you can use the  button (also shown as  on a mobile device). If, for example, your child has a fish allergy, you can turn on the fish filter, (from blue to grey). Then, when you close the “Meal Filters” window, you’ll only see meal options that do not contain fish. You can apply as many meal filters as you require.

  • Tap/click on the  symbol for more details about the school meals provided by Facilities Management (FM) Catering Services, Bradford Council’s in-house school catering provider.
  • Tap/click on the  icon to link through to the ParentPay website, where you can login to your account in the usual way.
