We are an award-winning, established, family-run business that has been catering successfully for Primary, Secondary School and Further Education sectors across the North of England since 1995.

We also provide exciting high street food concepts and promote a range of popular Meal Deals. Sampling sessions are also held throughout the year to encourage pupils to try a variety of new foods.
There are also regular special themed menus showcasing food from around the world to offer a variety of food choices which are very popular with pupils.
School Food Standards
Mellors Catering Services is very proud to exceed School Food Standards, meaning we provide a balanced diet with the essential nutrients your child needs. Menus developed by Mellors Catering Services ensure your child is given the healthiest choices that provide them with at least two of the recommended 5-a-day portions of fruit and veg.
Special dietary information
The on-site catering manager can discuss any dietary needs, if there are any specific dietary requirements we need to be aware of. This could include salt/sugar/fat content, level of dairy products or allergy information such as wheat, yeast, nuts, etc. The catering manager will work through this form to review the school menu and identify suitable foot options for any children with dietary issues. If you are joining Shevington High School please contact school to discuss dietary needs with the catering manager.
In addition to the above, allergen information will be provided in line with Natasha’s Law that comes into force in September 2021.
Shevington High School operates a cashless catering system which provides lots of advantages for the school, pupils and parents:
- Quicker service and shorter queues at lunch and break times
- No more looking for change every morning, accounts can be quickly credited online
- Discourages dinner money being spent in shops outside school for unhealthy snacks such as chocolate and crisps
- Automatic ‘Free School Meals’ allocation with students remaining anonymous
- Parents can receive reports of the use of the system
Fusion Pre-Order App
Students can also pre-order their favourite meal using the Fusion app. This gives students a smaller selection of meals to choose from, but reduces their queuing time. All parents will be issued a letter with their unique access code. The app also informs students of their dining account balance.
Further details are available in the sign up letter a copy of which is available here.
At Mellors, not only do we want to provide your child with a nutritious meal, we want them to have fun! Whether its National baking week or Best of British, we will run themes to bring something new to the table for your child to try. Beyond the dining room, Mellors Development Chefs offer classes to teach children the basics of cooking. Danielle, Head of Nutrition and Food Development, delivers assemblies in schools on the importance of making healthy choices. She’ll even get them on the smoothie bike to whizz up some drinks for the class. We also have the Mellors Big Red Bus that can visit our schools to provide a truly unique dining experience!
