Find out more about how our Kitchens are managed daily 

We are proud of our catering at Southfields Primary.  We own and manage our own kitchens and have a full time Kitchen Manager, Mrs Pink, and four assistants who work incredibly hard to cook fresh meals on site. We are a healthy school but also like to take time to find out what the children like to eat as well as broaden their experience of food.  During the year we like to celebrate special events and themes such as Chinese New Year, Around the World, Pancake Shrove Tuesday, Christmas Dinner, Easter Fun and The Wild West. The meals cost £2.00 which should be paid at the beginning of the week.  In the summer we like to take the children outside in the grounds to eat and we run sociable lunch times with music, flowers and talking question starters on all of the tables.  

The children are taught, by the staff, to be able to cook well as part of their enriched curriculum and take home freshly baked produce during their sessions to share with their family.  In addition to this we run an Indian Cookery club as well as many different events organised by the Food for Life and the Healthy School Committee.
