The standard of catering at a South Ayrshire school has been recognised with a national award for hygiene.
Braehead Primary School in Ayr has been unveiled as the latest South Ayrshire school to land a coveted Eat Safe Award, for going above and beyond the legal requirements.
All South Ayrshire schools demand excellent performance for food safety and hygiene. However, the Food Standards Scotland's Eat Safe Awards demonstrates an exceptional work ethic that delivers first-class preparation by catering staff.
Councillor Ian Cochrane, South Ayrshire Council's Sustainability & the Environment said a huge amount of work went in to achieving the award, “We want South Ayrshire to be the best it can be and for all people and places to have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
“In our schools, food hygiene plays a vital role, with healthy meals helping children and young people to stay focused, something which encourages active learning and promotes long term achievement.
“I’d like to congratulate the team at Braehead for their part in shaping the school day for the children, with the high standards demonstrated by this latest Eat Safe award something they should all be rightly proud of.”
21 other South Ayrshire schools have already gained Eat Safe Awards: Alloway Primary, Ayr Academy, Barassie Primary, Belmont Academy, Carrick Academy, Coylton Primary, Doonfoot Primary, Dundonald Primary, Forehill Primary, Girvan Academy, Glenburn Primary, Heathfield Primary, Kincaidston Primary, Kingcase Primary, Kyle Academy, Marr College, Monkton Primary, Muirhead Primary, Prestwick Academy, Queen Margaret Academy, and St John’s Primary.
