Buckswood Gains “Food For Life” Award The catering staff at Buckswood school, Hastings, are celebrating their success in having gained the bronze award in the Food for Life Partnership. Head Chef, Fred Bramble, received notification this week from Food for Life Partnership officials notifying them of the bronze award. “This is a tremendous accolade for the school,” he said. “I lead a brigade of chefs who are committed to the highest standards of food hygiene and preparation.” In communicating its success to the school, officials have invited Buckswood to go one stage further and aim for the silver and gold awards and have urged the school to celebrate its success. “You can now add the Food for Life Partnership Bronze award logo to your website, letterhead and any other school publications such as your menus,” they said. “You will also receive a certificate to display in your school.”

Buckswood Pupils are invited to tour inside the Houses of Parliament

In order to gain an award of this magnitude, Partnership officials must be satisfied that schools serve seasonal school meals that are at least 75% freshly prepared by a well-trained school cook. Buckswood’s commitment to the highest standards of catering extend beyond the kitchen, into the dining room. The school’s emphasis on table manners and dining room etiquette, for example, equip the three hundred and eighty students with the necessary social skills to dine with confidence at formal dinners and functions, at which there are many throughout the school year for the benefit of the students. Mr. Bramble went on to extol the virtues of table service, a unique feature of the family atmosphere at Buckswood. “Our students are served by a head of table in the old-fashioned manner,” he said, “we don’t have endless queues of children waiting to have scoops of mashed potato slapped onto their plates!” And the wine menu? “Well, funny you should mention that,” said Mr. Bramble, “the school is currently planting its own vineyard!”
