Our Head Chef, Hosanna, cooks fresh school lunches every day and each year group eats in our school dining room. The children are encouraged to behave as if they are sitting in a ‘posh restaurant’ so are taught how to sit properly at a table, use cutlery correctly, be polite and remain seated until they are dismissed.
Hosanna always provides a vegetarian option, a side dish and a salad bar. The children also have the choice of a low-sugar dessert or fresh fruit. All food is nut-free and caters to children with varying dietary requirements.
Our children are rewarded by trying new vegetables by getting a stamp on their Food Explorer Passport. It is a great initiative to encourage children to try new things. By the end of the Term, even our fussiest eaters are enjoying a wholesome meal.
The children also enjoy themed cuisine days for special occasions such as Chinese New Year, St Patrick’s Day, and national food days.
During the Summer Term, the cuisine reflects the Geography focused curriculum providing food from countries around the world. For the majority of our children, lunch time truly is the highlight of their day!
