At Hillyfield, we have a very high take up of children choosing to eat school, lunches. The children choose from a range of options on a daily basis and can access our extensive salad bar and choose from a range of fresh fruits every day. Our in-house catering team is currently being supported by a group of Governors who are supporting the team with delivering a menu of even higher quality.
Their work involves sampling firsthand the food that is being provided; benchmarking exercises with other providers; gaining parent and pupil views through online surveys and reviewing the costs attached to producing the food. We are using the “School Food Standard” to ensure our meals meet requirements, and have recently started to work towards accreditation from the “Food for Life” scheme. It is important to us that our pupils enjoy a freshly cooked and nutritious meal as part of their school day.
