Jamie Oliver has made a blistering attack on Michael Gove over school food, claiming that some of the Education Secretary’s flagship academies are lowering nutrition levels among pupils and profiteering from junk food vending machines because they have been allowed to ignore national standards.
Furness Academy’s funding agreement states that we must comply with the government guidelines on food nutrition in the same way as maintained schools. These guidelines came into force for secondary schools in 2009.
Here at Furness Academy we are, (and always have been), fully compliant with the government’s guidelines. We use a nutritional software package which enables us to achieve this. Our menus rotate on 3 week cycle and are reviewed and changed termly. These menus are available for you to view on our website. You can also view them and get a list of what your child has actually eaten, on Parentpay.
