Cecil Jones Academy Catering

At Cecil Jones we have a break and lunchtime offer. We provide nutritionally balanced food and offer a varied menu. We tailor our menus to the students’ needs and continue to discuss menu options with them. Meals are prepared using fresh ingredients daily. Our three weekly lunch menu cycle includes:

  • meat or fish
  • vegetarian choices
  • salad bar
  • variety of desserts both hot and chilled

Our breakfast club offer includes free cereals, toast, fruit, squash and hot drinks. Opening times are from 8.00am until 8.20am.

Morning break allows children to buy healthy snacks both hot and cold.

Opening times are from 10.55am until 11.15am.

At lunchtime we offer a variety of meal deals that incorporate a variety of dishes and can include a drink or dessert of the day. The meal deal costs students £2.20 and opening times are from 1.15pm until 1.55pm.

To reduce the queue waiting times we have three separate service points to allow students to buy hot food, chilled snacks, sandwiches and drinks.

As your children spend much of their time in school, they need nutritious food for long-term good health. A healthy, balanced diet also helps your child learn in the classroom and leads to improved educational outcomes.

According to World Health Organisation, nearly one-fifth of the world’s children and youth are overweight or obese. In the Uk we are seeing a steady increase of overweight children. We need to start raising awareness of this issue when children are young so that they will learn to eat healthy very early on, because habits are set in childhood. They are capable of understanding the effects of food on the body and make smart choices about nutritious foods.

Here at Loxford we aim to support students making healthy choices. Students on free school meals in years 7 – 11 are strongly encouraged to take the main meal of the day, many Sixth Form students choose to do the same. Meals are freshly cooked each day using seasonal ingredients offering a varied menu of family favourites along with one off days where students are encouraged to try something new.

GDPR

A new set of regulations comes into force on 25 May 2018 called the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).  This is an important piece of legislation that is designed to provide greater protection for individuals when their personal data is being processed or stored.

In the course of providing school meals to pupils and staff there is a need for the school to share relevant personal data with the caterer, including a pupil’s name, class and dietary requirements.  This data sharing represents a legitimate interest in terms of the GDPR  and we can confirm that Harrison Catering Services is required to comply with the new regulations in the processing of the personal data.
