Hello, my name is Sally Townsend. I have been the Catering Manager at the Brentwood Ursuline for the past 18 1/2 years. I have a team of eleven staff in the school kitchen, all very dedicated to serving your child with freshly cooked nutritious food which is prepared daily on site.
We have been an 'in house' operation for the past 16 years and during this time have gone from strength to strength. We are a Healthy Eating School supported by 'LBA Safety'. We also hold a 5 for our food hygiene rating, which is very good.
In 2007 I became part of the Essex Networking Team, a group of Catering Managers from secondary schools across the area. We meet termly to discuss ideas and incentives to benefit our kitchens. We have in school a Healthy Eating Group, part of the School Council, who meet 1/2 termly to discuss any food related issues and put forward new ideas.
We have taken on fully the Government food and nutruent based standards for school meals. New standards came in January 2015. We use local bread, fruit, vegetables and meat which are delivered by our suppliers.
A few years ago we totally revamped out Eastside Dining Room making it more trendy and high street friendly. This is a quick grab and go area. Here we sell sandwiches, baguettes, salads etc. We also have a 'Pasta King' and jacket potato bar at lunchtimes. Our main dining area is off the kitchen where all the hot, freshly prepared meals can be purchased - we have a 3 week lunch menu on offer.We have a separate 6th Form Kitchen and Dining Area which opened three years ago. Breakfast is also served from 7.50am until 8.30am.
In July 2009 we took the decision to make the Catering Department cashless catering. This avoids the need for pupils to carry cash. A biometric system from Vericool is used. Payment can be made via Parentpay for your child's account to be credited. This account can be viewed online.
If your child has any special dietary requirements, I would be happy to discuss this with you. Finally, we hope that your child enjoys our food and mealtimes with us. All we ask is that at the end of their meal they clear their table, stack their dirty plates and put any rubbish in the bins provided.
