Enfield Catering Services

Enfield Catering Services Vision and Values

Enfield Catering Services have been awarded the Prestigious Silver Catering Mark from the Soil Association for all its Primary and Special schools.

Highfield school was chosen for the inspection and the Inspector praised our Chef Naz Unuvardir for the food served at lunchtime stating it was “healthy, colourful and with the best salad bar he had ever seen in a school”

We know that here in Enfield we are successful in providing a good service that is improving in line with the needs of pupils, parents and schools all the time.

Healthy Eating

Healthy snack guidance:
We allow children to have a healthy snack at break time. Children in Early Years and KS1 are provided with a piece of fruit/vegetables, while in KS2 parents/carers have the option to provide their child with a healthy snack, for break time.
There has been some confusion and debate about what constitutes a healthy snack and after looking at NHS  advice and understanding the need for clarity on this issue we have decided for KS2 a healthy snack is a piece of fruit or a vegetable. This is in line what is provided for children in the Early Years and KS1.
