Our School Council, Cook, Senior Lunchtime Supervisor, 2 Governors and Head went to visit Broughton Primary School. The School Council and children of the academy want to improve our school dinners, and we were recommended to visit Broughton Primary as they have a really good uptake of lunches - meaning the dinners must be good!
Our School Council met with Broughton's School Council and the children went off to sample a lunchtime experience, and have a look around the beautiful newly built and refurbished school - armed with IPads to take lots of pictures (see below).
Broughton were lovely hosts, and showed us everything and discussed what they liked about their dinners. We could see they had a lot of choice - main courses, deserts, salads, wraps and lots of vegetables (we counted 8!) - the children aim to be really healthy and know they have to take at least two vegetables. We really enjoyed our dinner.
We were treated after lunch to watching Broughton children 'perform' their Chinese exercise routine - they did it so well and we could see the benefits of this exercise.
When we got back to the academy, we made a list of everything we liked and we are going to meet with North Lincs catering and our staff to see what we can introduce to make improvements to our dinners. Watch this space!
Many thanks to Mr Hargreaves and Broughton's School Council for allowing us to look around their wonderful school - we loved our dinner and seeing the amazing art work. You were great hosts and we look forward to returning the hospitality at our academy after Christmas.
