Healthier Menus Schools Award


Keswick School is the first school in Cumbria to achieve the Healthier Menus for Schools Award.  This accolade is a demonstration of the catering team’s commitment and hard work in delivering delicious healthy school meals to our students.  Over 98% of students opt for school meals rather than bringing their own lunches into school.

The award is a county wide initiative developed with Cumbria County Council which aims to enable students to make healthier and more informed food choices leading to health benefits.  To qualify, school’s need to have very high standards of food hygiene and food safety and met the requirements of the School Food Regulations 2014.  Keswick School aims to develop healthy eating habits and a have nutritionally balanced meal options available to students which is crucial for healthy development and fully supports this initiative.
