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 six children from Year 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 meals in school. This year our food ambassadors are:
From 6MB Leona, Jamie-Lee and Nagina
From 6SJ we have
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.
Last year we came half way towards achieving our Silver Award and this year we aim to continue working towards this award with the hope to earning our Silver Food for Life Award by 2020.
We are really pleased with our new canvas pictures that are now brightening up our dining hall. Thank you Shirley pupils - you voted for some wonderful food images.
Mrs Gardener is our volunteer helper.

Our after school growing event was a real success. Thank you to all the parents that came. We hope you enjoyed making caterpillars, planting seeds, making bug hotels and exporing our garden and nature area.
Thank you also to all the Shirley children that made the delicious carrot cake that we enjoyed after our gardening.
