Our catering provision is moving in-house from September 2019. Our outstanding catering team will all move across as well, meaning that there will be no visible change to our provision.
However, under the management of the College, Swanmore Caterers will aim to evolve with a clear emphasis on healthy eating and sustainability. We are working hard to ensure that we are not only Allergen Accredited but ‘Natasha’s Law Compliant’ by Christmas 2019. Alongside this, we have recently become a corporate member of Anaphylaxis UK ensuring that we have a collaborative partnership, enabling the college to have a more effective understanding of the allergy issues to hand.
We will then turn our focus to sustainability, looking to significantly reduce our use of plastic and instead opting for an environmentally friendlier solution.
Our management team have agreed a partnership with Bidfood, ensuring we have access to high quality, sustainable produce at affordable prices.
We will continue to offer service before school as well as at both lunchtime and breaktime.
Pupils will have access to a better range of food choices, with a varied menu including home cooked meals, loaded jackets, pasta pots, snacks, salad pots, sandwiches and fresh fruit salads. Homemade cakes and cookies can also be found on the menu along with a good selection of drinks.
We use a cashless system for the purchase of food and drink; this can be accessed through biometric technology or a swipe card meaning pupils don’t need to carry cash on them and parents can track purchases and spend online.
