Kincaidston Primary celebrates excellent food hygiene standards

The standard of catering at a South Ayrshire school has been recognised with a national award for hygiene.

Kincaidston Primary School has been unveiled as South Ayrshire’s 21st 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 the recognition was well deserved, “While we take high standards for granted no-one should underestimate the work that goes on behind the scenes to achieve a first class service.


“Food hygiene is critical to our children and young people and parents and carers can be reassured that staff are working above and beyond the required level of service to ensure that school meals are as healthy and nutritious as possible.


“I’d like to congratulate the team at Kincaidston who become the 21st school in South Ayrshire to land this coveted award, something they should all be rightly proud of.”



20 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, Kingcase Primary, Kyle Academy, Marr College, Monkton Primary, Muirhead Primary, Prestwick Academy, Queen Margaret Academy, and St John’s Primary.
