As a returning staff member to Edwards and Ward after previously working with them for 10 years, I have amazing memories of working in my first primary school in the small Cotswolds Town of Lechlade! This month I have been working in Hullavington Primary School as an Area Support Manager and, although this isn’t my usual base, I am so glad my Operations Manager, John, has lent me to Martin who covers the Somerset area. I guess staff absence brought me here by luck?!
One major improvement we have been working on this month has been food waste. This was an issue raised when I took over the kitchen who were keen to tackle unnecessary waste and the resulting high price per meal. Our solution was simple. Kids want their meals to look appealing on the counter and on their plates and so do I. By prepping visually appealing food and managing portion control correctly, our food waste has dramatically dropped! This couldn’t have happened without the support of amazing School Staff.
My clients, school staff and the children are who are most important to me at the end of the day, and to receive such great feedback from the school is fantastic not only for me but also for Edwards and Ward. Thank you to The Headteacher, Office Staff and Dinner Staff for all your help and support; it’s been a pleasure to help the school. Hullavington will always have a place in my heart. Good luck with your new kitchen in July!
