At Shirley, we are committed to providing children with tasty and healthy school meals that are cooked by our dedicated kitchen team. Our catering company, ABM, have now been in charge of our school meals for over three years and we believe in this time the provision of school meals has got better and better. Each year a group of children from Years 5 and 6 put themselves forward as food ambassadors and attend half termly meetings to discuss school meals, the dining hall environment and other issues relating to food in school.
The pupils are often joined by a representative from ABM catering or our school cook, lunchtime staff, parent governors, our headteacher and Mrs Roe who helps to coordinate the group.
In 2016, the food ambassadors helped the school to achieve the Bronze Food for Life award. You can find out more about the award here.
We are now working towards achieving a new Food Award called the Food Smart award. You can find out more about this award here.
