Healthy Schools - Food & Nutrition
At the start of September 2008 the school catering facility was brought in house, and we have direct control over the quality of food available to our students.
We create menus, which not only meets the Government’s school food guidelines, but also offers a higher quality and much-improved menu to our students.
It is important to create an offer, which gives an interesting and varied choice but which also provided the chance for all our customers to eat a balanced and healthy meal.
We use and promote fresh fruit and vegetables, where possible procured locally. And also meet the criteria necessary for a Healthy School.
We think we have something for everyone and students are very pleased with the choices on offer.
All daily aspects of catering provision within the school will be met by the in house catering team. The catering team will provide breakfast, morning break and lunch on a day-to-day basis.
As you may be aware the new Nutritional Guidelines for schools came into force for Lunch in September 2006 and were made law for all other services at the start of September 2007.
Whilst working within these guidelines in school we hope that we are providing an interesting and varied menu choice alongside tasty nutritious food which our customers will want to eat.
We look forward to seeing you in our restaurant and hope that you will enjoy your eating experience.
If you have any questions regarding the catering provision at Gateacre please do not hesitate to contact the catering team at school.
