The Priory School kitchen prepares over 200 meals daily, including for The Garth School, and with the new head cook Helen Swanson joining last April, the entire menu has had a complete overhaul.

Helen and the catering team of Sharon Inglis, Marion Perkins, Lyn Ansell and Alison Thomas, have introduced new exciting and healthy options for pupils.

These include a new salad bar, with a variety of salad and vegetable items, pulses and grains. The team like to “sneak” veg into meals and recipes to ensure pupils are get their five a day!

Helen said, "We are a very good team, working very hard together to deliver great meals for the children. We have recently updated our menu and now always create meals each day using fresh ingredients. The pupils and staff are loving the smell of freshly baked bread wafting around the school every day.

"I am very pleased with the rating we have been given. This clearly reflects all our hard work."
