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 6LF we have Jonan, Luis and Honey
From 6LTF we have Lizzie, Alex and Xan
The pupils are 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.
Last year the food ambassadors helped the school to achieve the Bronze Food for Life award. You can find out more about the award here.
This year we aim to consolidate our Bronze Award work and begin our work on the criteria for the Silver Award.
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.

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.
Our Food Ambassadors have been really busy this term helping to organise the Shirley pupils to vote for some very large canvas food pictures that will brighten up our dining room in the new year. The most popular designs have been ordered and we can't wait to see them hanging in our hall.
They also decided to help Team Shirley raise money at the Christmas Fair by setting up smoothie stall. Not only were the smoothies delicious but they were also super healthy! See the photo below.
Thank you ambassadors and keep up the hard work!
