If the proof is in the pudding, then the sheer number of school meals served each day and the clean plates being returned to the kitchen shows just how much pupils enjoy their food and the quality of our catering.
Menus are designed to provide healthy choices; low in salt, sugar and saturated fat. Fresh food from local suppliers is delivered and served daily from our professional kitchen which is 5-star food hygiene rated by the Food Standards Agency.
Our pupils are served lunch every day in the modern and bright dining Hall at Fairfield. Service is from 13.10 to 14:10, allowing plenty of time to fit in lunchtime activities or clubs and still enjoy a hot meal.
Each day there is a choice of 2 meat dishes, a Vegetarian option, jacket potatoes and a delicious freshly made soup. Pupils are encouraged to substitute dessert for soup, helping towards their “5-a-day” and reducing the sugar content of their daily diet.
There is also a self-help salad bar and a hot vegetable and potato bar ensuring healthy choices are always available through lunch.
Our chefs cater for a wide range of cultural, religious and dietary requirements. Our fresh meat suppliers are Halal registered, and all catering staff, whatever their role in the kitchen, have an in-depth understanding of the importance of treating all choices and requirements with reverence and respect, ensuring complete peace of mind for both parents and pupils.
