Brompton school award win

Primary Catering Team of the Year!

We’re proud to announce that our Catering team at Brompton School has recently been awarded the Primary Catering Team of the Year Award by LACA for the Yorkshire and Humber region at an awards ceremony on 14th June in York!

This is a fantastic achievement for the team who were commended for the work of the school chef, Sharon, and the team who have worked so hard to boost school meal take up numbers by 50% with their ‘you never know, give it a go’ mantra!!!

The team showcased to the judges how their enthusiastic cookery, preparing fantastic food and giving a variety of choices including a main course, jacket potatoes and a vegetarian option along with their great customer service skills helped to get so many more children taking a school meal at lunchtime – so many that they’ve had to bring in an additional member of staff.

All this is on top of the great breakfast club and after school activities that they also support with options including pancakes, homemade breads and hot sandwiches as well as preparing over 30 meals for Osmotherley school five miles away each day.

Shaun Mancrief, Head of Facilities Management commented “this award is a great achievement for the team at Brompton,  they provide a first class service to the school, delivering excellence, seeing tasks through, and helping to support and develop others. Sharon has a gift for nurturing new talent and the whole team have supported her in the additional task of training a new mobile kitchen assistant”.  

“The team always have smiles on their faces, know the children individually and encourage them to make healthy choices and try new things”.
