Yeading Junior School
Catering Project 2019

"The opportunity we had to work with Yeading Junior to improve their catering service was a wonderful experience"

1. Goal

To improve quality of school meals, pricing and overall service by the catering provider. To identify where major solutions could be implemented to resolve a number of issues such as admin and maintaining all catering data securely, to improve engagement with parents and to increase meal uptake each term. To meet public procurement regulations, stay compliant and achieve the greatest results.

2. Challenge

We had a tight deadline of 4 weeks to procure a new catering service, this meant supporting the Head Teacher and Finance Manager throughout the entire project. The school did not know where to begin and how to conduct the tender on their own, but we were happy to be there every step of the way and to ensure that their current catering supplier works with the new provider during the TUPE process for catering to be transferred over to continue the catering service within the deadline.

3. Solution

We produced a timetable detailing all key milestones, developed all major tender documentation within 2 days, launched the tender, and visited the school to present potential ways Yeading Junior's catering can be improved. Advised the best scoring and weighting criteria for the evaluation so we can measure greater quality of meals. We also developed a procurement pricing tool that helped the Finance Manager at Yeading Junior's measure all costs and future forecasts in great detail.

4. Results

We helped Yeading achieve incredible results, Yeading's meal quality increased from a standard bronze menu to a FOOD for LIFE GOLD Menu with major investments made by the catering provider. Greater healthier ingredients is part of their menu, which means pupils get healthier meals every day. New and exciting changes to presentation was implemented that has energized parents, pupils and staff. A new admin system has been introduced that has cut invoice and admin time by 95% and a fully audit system is being used to keep track on all meal orders.
