Congratulations to our Award-Winning Catering Team!

Our amazing Catering Team were honoured at Rochdale Town Hall this afternoon, when they were presented an Excellence Certificate from the Greater Manchester Healthier Catering Award.

As you can see from the certificate pictured above, this means Lowerplace has a Food Hygiene rating of 5, offers a range of healthier food and drinks that are lower in saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and salt, offers a portion of fruit or vegetables, actively promotes healthier food and drinks, and has strategies in place to promote sustainability.

We are so proud of our Catering Team – they work very hard to produce a varied, exciting and most importantly delicious school menu.  All meal choices are healthy, and the children love the fresh salad bar.  Our School Meal menu includes a choice of two hot meals each day, as well as freshly prepared sandwiches and jacket potatoes with a variety of fillings.  We also have themed meals and special weeks to celebrate festivals and sporting events, adapting the menu to suit.  I think you’ll agree, the team definitely deserve this recognition!
