The contract has the potential to be a 6 year provision; 2 years initially, with a 2 year extension, followed by another 2 year extension if the standard of Service for the Delivered In Hot School Meals is considered by the schools’ staff and governors to be providing good quality food that is providing value for money and is popular with the school pupils. The contract will start from September 2018. Bidders need to note that whilst the overall population of the schools is approximately 649, the uptake of schools meals is about 278 or 42% of the school population daily. These meals will be served for 190 days; the length of a school year.
