Jamie Oliver himself may not have visited Eaton Bray Lower School, but he would be proud of the pukka recipes and enthusiasm of everyone involved with the new school dinners.
The governors of the school have held meetings with catering specialists Scolarest and came up with a winning formula; a new cook and a new healthy option menu. On Wednesday afternoon, parents, governors, pupils and the head of Scolarest met to test-drive the new menu.
Head teacher Sue Hounslow said: "We are a high-achieving school and we wanted a school dinner to match. The children are now being given freshly-cooked healthy food. The next step is to create a real restaurant atmosphere where plastic trays are replaced with plates, and children fully engage in conversation and debate."
