The catering team at Highbridge’s King Alfred School are celebrating after achieving a five star food hygiene rating.

Inspectors from Sedgemoor District Council visited the school earlier this month and awarded the school a five star rating for a sixth time.

The national scheme, which is run by councils across the UK, helps consumers choose where to eat out or buy food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, cafes, takeaways, mobile outlets, hotels and food retailers.

Tracey Lowe, catering manager at King Alfred School, told “We are delighted to have achieved the top rating again.”

“It is reassuring for our customers to know that we maintain the very highest of standards.”

Opening at 8am for breakfasts, the canteen provides a menu of hot and cold food, freshly prepared freshly daily on premises.
