Food and Nutrition
St. Edmund's is committed to providing excellent nutrition for all our pupils. We know that a healthy, balanced and nutritionally robust diet supports outstanding teaching and learning. Our catering company, Thomas Franks, are leaders in the independent sector and Stephen Mann, the Catering Manager expertly runs the kitchen with his team.
Working in partnership, Thomas Franks and St. Edmund's are fully committed to a varied programme of healthy eating, one where meals are prepared on the premises using fresh and seasonal ingredients. We use as many local suppliers as possible to produce our menus and which also helps towards reducing our carbon footprint.
We love marking special occasions such as Chinese New Year, Burns Night, St. Patrick’s Day, through what we eat and have a lot of fun decorating the dining rooms. We have a pupil ‘Food Committee’ who the catering team collaborate with regularly, looking at menu creation and discussing menu ideas.
Our kitchen is completely nut free and we cater for all allergies and special diets.
