Silver Winner 2018
Focus on gluten – sponsored by Coeliac UK

Judges comments - September 2018

'The school have thorough processes to ensure pupils are kept safe and the staff are well trained. Really good that the the children get to speak to the chef and discuss their dietary needs – promotes a better understanding all round. It would be good to know if there are photos of the children who suffer from food allergies posted in the kitchen so that the serving staff recognise them. That way staff serving the food could be more allergen aware.

Unfortunately, there is no information on the school website about the food that they serve or their provision for allergic children – this would be very helpful for prospective parents. From their entry form they appear to be keen to provide safe food in a safe environment for children with gluten free and other dietary needs but it is difficult to judge as there is no back up information.

Good that they have allergen free days, but maybe more than once every three weeks? Also some concern that a buffet offering was supervised effectively as children are notorious for not following the rules.'
