HEAD TEACHERS Briefing Notes – Apr 2020 Menu
Please find attached a copy of your April 2020 Head Teachers menu pack. This one page briefing note has been delivered by hand from your Catering Chef Manager to inform you of what is happening. The remainder of your pack as detailed below will be on BSOL
shortly. Your Head Teacher pack contains the following:
We have created a menu that is in keeping with our new ‘Home Cooked’ theme. The menu is also fully compliant to the Statutory Food Based Standards and the Soil Association’s Food for Life Bronze Catering Mark Award which is attached (Form 2) – Compliant
In addition to the compliant menu we have also included a list of ‘Other Options‘(Form 3) that can be used to replace any dishes from the compliant menu should you choose.
Your Catering Chef Manager has been fully briefed on the menu planning process and will be arranging to speak with you or the schools nominated person to discuss the menus and the options that are available.
Some features of the new menu include:
- Meat Free Mondays – This is optional although it is highly recommended by The Soil Association Food for Life for the health benefits to Primary school children.
- 11 New recipes as well as a number of Vegan Dishes have been added to the Other Options Form
- Template menu is deemed 82% ‘Freshly prepared on site’ in line with the Soil Association - Bronze Catering Mark Award.
- Homemade Daily Fresh Bread To support the free bread allocation there will be homemade fresh bread available daily.
To achieve our menu planning deadlines, we ask that menu changes are made before 27th January 2020 to allow time for amendments, print production and dispatch in time for the April 2020 menu cycle.
We would also ask that your Catering Chef Manager be invited to attend any school council meetings that will take place to discuss the April 2020 menu. This is to ensure pupils are fully engaged with menu & product development directly and to feedback to
the on-site Catering Chef Manager any views pupils may have.
Should you have any queries, please speak to your Catering Chef Manager.
