Involving pupils and adding interest

A school council working group investigated how pupils wanted their school meals to change and found that a modern more appropriate form of dining was needed.

Students were surveyed about what foods they wanted. PSHE and citizenship lessons were used to get across the importance of a balanced diet. A stay-on-site policy for younger years was introduced. A modest investment from the school resulted in a dining hall re-design.

The result following CaterMap’s involvement:

  • School meal revenues have increased by more than 40%.
  • An extra 250 students now eat school meals.
  • Student behaviour has improved – especially during the afternoon.
  • Quantities of litter have been reduced.
  • Queuing is almost non-existent.
  • The food and restaurant facilities were voted one of the top three things students like about the school.
