Hindley All Saints' was the first primary school in Wigan to take control of its own food and meal provision.
This is still an unusual and unique situation for a primary school.
It means we control the quality of our meals as well as organize and deliver a high specification service, catering for the whole of our community.
Working with staff and our school ambassadors, we have:
enabled children to make their meal choice each day
set up a 'family' meal time experience
removed the 'flight trays' and provided real plates
used better ingredients and make our own meals
invited parents to share a meal with their child
placed fruit, sweets and puddings where children can have free choic,
bought new tables and chairs which are more suitable and brighten the environment
run parent 'Master Chef' classes
used the kitchen academy facility with the children to make, bake and cook things.
It is our intention to develop our facilities further for the benefit of everyone.
Meals are still only £2.00 a day.

Claiming free school meals enables school to get more money from the government too.
