The Kitchen Team
As a team we work tirelessly to produce food of a high standard for the children at our school who choose to have a school dinner. The meals along with bread, cakes and biscuits are all made daily from scratch (with the exception of muffins).
All meals are produced with fresh ingredients which are locally sourced by Leicestershire Traded Services and a lot of time and thought is given to the menus by specialist dieticians.
On the very rare occasions that the menu has to be changed we will always notify the school first.
We produce in excess of 350 meals everyday (we also cater for 2 other local schools) and are very proud of the food we serve.
We will shortly start posting and tweeting some photos of the kitchen area and food to give you an insight into what goes on in the kitchen and what the children are eating. Any photos of the prepared dinners will be taken at the start of service which means it will show a KS1 portion, also children do have two pudding options or fruit or yoghurt so the pudding shown may vary from what your child has chosen that day.
We remain very keen to provide an open door policy and welcome any feedback or concerns you may have. Please come and see us if you have any questions or email me (Amber) directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
(from 26th October 2020)
