At our Schools, we work to a three–week menu cycle which is updated each term. The menus proposed for each school are designed to be imaginative and interesting and through our extensive experience we know our menus will reflect pupils’ preferences and our aim is to assist in the promotion and education of healthy eating.
Menus will always be prepared from fresh ingredients and cooked with a minimal amount of sugar, salt and polyunsaturated fats. Our chefs use lean cuts of meat and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Often the cooking process itself is the key to ensuring that food served is healthy. It’s for this reason that we cook in combination ovens. Additionally, our menus are checked by Sarah Flower our nutritionist who ensures they are properly balanced and nutritionally sound.
Our menus are designed based on the Eat Well Plate of nutritional guidelines. Our pledge is to ensure that pupils understand what eating healthily means and what they should be doing to ensure they are eating a balanced diet. Information and advice is also on hand for pupils to encourage them to recognise the importance of eating at mealtimes and not snacking or eating too many sweet treats.
“Team development along with individual training plans, play a major part in the overall approach to continuous improvement and an open style of management.
