As with educational staff, we will expect food based school staff to perform in line with the school values and ethos.

We want children, staff and parents to have a say in the menu offer, and for children to learn about food and nutrition through a healthy school food offer. We want pupils to know about where food comes from, food names, and try new foods in a nurturing environment. We want food to be cooked from scratch, locally sourced, seasonal and as ethical as possible.
