Every school has to be assessed for a Food Hygiene Rating to give a clear indication of their standards within the kitchen. Ironically, Poplar Farm School's visit took place during National School Meals Week!
The rating takes into account the following factors as outlined by the Food Standards Agency:
handling of food
how food is stored
how food is prepared
cleanliness of facilities
how food safety is managed
We are delighted to announce that Poplar Farm School received a perfect score of 5 out of 5 thanks to the brilliant work of Giancarlo and the Midday Supervisors.
Erica McGinley, Head of School, commented: "I am so excited and proud of our fantastic team. I am delighted to have our first achievement sticker on the front door. The children enjoy amazing healthy meals every day and that is thanks to Giancarlo's creativity."
