Just ask any member of the Hunsley community and they’ll tell you about the delicious and nutritious food prepared each day in our two busy kitchens.
Our Trust Catering Manager, Eve Wood, sources all our meat and vegetables locally on a daily basis, which accounts for our excellent reputation for tasty, freshly-cooked and varied meals, which promote ‘Healthy Eating’ and have earned Hunsley Trust a Healthy School Status Award. Our menu cycle varies from term to term, taking into account the changes in weather, seasonal produce and the changing demands on young children needing plentiful energy and nutrition for moving, thinking and growing.
Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils are entitled to take up a daily free school meal as part of the Universal Infant Free School Meals national initiative, which has been in place since September 2014. We encourage parents to take up the provision of a hot school meal where possible and discuss menu options with their child and encourage them to enjoy the delicious food we have on offer.
Children and staff will eat together where possible to enjoy an organised, familial meal. It is very important to us that lunchtime is a positive and enjoyable experience, where pupils’ good manners and table skills are reinforced. We will support children with their eating and encourage good habits.
