Our school meals are produced on site and meet all relevant nutritional standards as set out in the ‘School Food Standards’ document January 2015.
“As a head teacher I always wanted to make sure that my children ate a good school lunch. Not only does a good quality lunch improve a pupil’s concentration in the afternoon, but the atmosphere in the canteen is critical to encouraging good behaviour.
More than that, lunch is the only time of day when the whole school – children and teachers – have a chance to come together. The atmosphere of the canteen sets a tone for the rest of the school and helps to establish the school’s culture”
Sir Michael Wilshaw, Chief Inspector of Schools
