Student Voice

An example of a whole school change as a result of student council suggestions and discussions

Students have made complaints that they felt that the school menu was no longer varied or good enough quality compared to what they were used too.  They mentioned, in particular, the food in the evening in Residential.  It seems to be just frozen type food, ie. fishfingers, beans and chips, sausage, beans and chips.  The students said the food was boring and that they wanted something tastier and homemade.

Students, therefore, discussed the type of food they would like to see produced daily within school.  PP and AM would like a Chinese day or chicken day.  LS wants pulled pork day.  They all agreed that macaroni cheese should be on offer along with pasta bake and roast dinners every week.  Stew and dumplings on rotation was discussed.  The attached two week menu was put in place by all of the students contributing and discussing which foods they wanted, on which days and why.  Mark will give two weeks to get the ingredients and then this menu will take effect.  The following puddings were also considered to be students’ favourites and they request that they could be available across the week.  Chocolate cake, lemon drizzle cake, cheesecake crumble and custard and puddings that are easier for students to take with them ie. biscuits.  Students were very clear that they did not want brownies to be on offer every day!
