Five Star Food!
In our most recent hygiene inspection by West Lancashire Borough Council, our school kitchen achieved
the highest possible rating of 5.
Congratulations to Mrs Trafford & Mrs Murrie who cook & serve our children with delicious, healthy,
hygienically prepared food every day.
Our rating is proudly displayed in the kitchen window alongside the daily menu.
Thanks to a Government Initiative, from September 2014 all pupils from Reception up to year 2 will
receive a daily meal free of charge.
Our kitchen prepares four, nutritionally balanced hot options every day. Portions are the right size for
young children and are made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
As part of the School Food Plan the food based standards have now taken effect.
The standards are intended to ensure that children get the nutrition they need across the whole day and the main principles are:
• At least three different fruits and three different vegetables each week.
• A dessert containing at least 50% fruit two or more times each week.
• No more than two pastry items a week.
• No more than two days a week when a carbohydrate cooked in oil or fat is served (garlic bread, roast potatoes, chips, diced potatoes, hash brown & Yorkshire pudding)
• Oily fish once or more every three week.
Our cook will happily provide a cold lunch if your child does not wish to take any of the hot options.
Parents of pupils in years 3-6 must pay for meals in advance (currently £2.30 per day/ £11.50 per week) by cash (in a sealed labelled envelope) or cheque (payable to Lancashire County Council) at the school office or online with a minimum payment of one week (£11.50).
Please contact Mrs Cartwright to arrange on-line payments.
