What the school offers its staff

At Matford Brook Academy, we come together every day at lunchtime to eat a hot meal together. We call this Family Dining and it is a daily celebration of our community.

We believe that it is fundamentally important for all children to have a healthy meal each day at school. We also believe that mealtimes are an opportunity to come together as a school community, to discuss how the day is going and to build great relationships between staff and pupils.

Our catering partner is Educatering from Dart Fresh - www.educatering.uk - who pride themselves on restaurant quality, locally sourced meals for pupils and share our passion for mealtimes at school.

Our Catering Manager will be a vital member of our team, inspiring the catering team, staff and students with their passion for great food and underpinning the family dining model which brings pupils and staff together each day.

We are looking for someone with high standards to lead an excellent catering service with overall responsibility for the day to day running of the kitchen, including compliance and health and safety.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Ted Wragg Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will also be completed.
