On Friday, I attended a lunch at school where the School Council met with a representative called Matt from Norse, our school lunch provider. The School Council provided Matt with details of surveys they had undertaken across the school which asked about pupil’s thoughts on school lunches and then specifically on each menu choice. Lots of really good feedback was given to Matt on what they liked and disliked about school lunches, and the children were very confident and clear in expressing themselves in a polite way.
Matt has promised that Norse will continue to monitor the food coming from the sending kitchen to make sure that the quality is consistently good. He is also going to provide the school with a salad bar on every day but a roast day, together with bowls of prepared fruit to make that a more appetising pudding choice. There will also be a trial of a pick and mix lunch box option, details of which will follow shortly.
