School Meal Tasting Session Wednesday 23rd January at 3.15 p.m.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Tasting Session 23rd of January 3.15pm

To give you an opportunity to sample some of the dishes from our menu, we are holding a Tasting Session at the school on Wednesday the 23rd of January 3.15pm

Everyone is welcome, so please call in.

Members of Totally Local Catering Team will be available to discuss the menu and answer any questions you may have regarding the catering service.

Our culture

As a team, we are passionate about providing high quality, diverse and nutritional meals.  We work in full partnership with your school to engage with your children and encourage a culture of healthy eating.   Creating delicious and healthy menus that your children want to eat is our priority.  Through our role, we help your children learn at a young age, that eating well can be fun and that food is central to their health and energy.

The menus

Each day, we provide your children with a delicious, wholesome hot meal. This is complemented by vegetables and salad, in addition to vegetarian options and options for those with special dietary needs; and of course, a dessert and variety of drinks. Catering for all pupils and staff, we will also work with the school to create a menu that meets the needs of any special diets.

Making food fun

We know it’s important to make healthy eating fun.  Throughout the year we hold ‘theme days’ and competitions to encourage your children to think and healthy food in a positive way.

Quality

The food we use is locally sourced wherever possible. Over 85% of our menu is produced from raw ingredients by our professionally qualified staff.  The meat in our dishes is Red Tractor, Freedom Foods or Halal certified. We procure fresh quality produce via reputable suppliers to ensure complete traceability of food.

Our current menus meet all food based standards and allergen laws; they include: Red Tractor or Farm Assured Meat and Poultry, fresh quality fruit and vegetables, two of the five daily portions of fruit and Marine Stewardship Council approved fish.  All of our preparation and menus meet the full requirements of the food based standards and allergen laws.

We look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Children in Need – Thursday 15th November

‘The Big Spotacular’

As you may already know, Monday 12th November is the start of this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal Week. Thorn Grove is excited to be joining in with other schools across the UK to participate in fundraising for this good cause.

This year’s theme is ‘The Big Spotacular’ and we will be celebrating with a spotty themed non-uniform day on Thursday 15th November 2018. Think big or small – full spotty themed outfits and face paint or just a pair of spotty socks – we welcome and encourage it all! To help raise funds for Children in Need we ask anyone wishing to wear something spotty to bring in a suggested donation of £1 on the day.

As well as our non-uniform event, children will be attending a whole school assembly in which their class teachers will be participating in a spotty, pie challenge! Children will also be voting for 1 member of their class to compete in the child friendly version. We can guarantee it will be a side splitting event.

Thank you for your continued support and let’s make a big difference to the lives of children across the UK.

 

Yours faithfully,

Miss Bennett & Mrs Denford
