Since its founding in 1994, Harrison has always been about quality fresh food prepared on-site and served by people who love what they do. Over 100 clients across the UK enjoy a Harrison foodservice, with more than 100,000 meals being served each day by approximately 2,000 staff across more than 270 locations. They include Reading School, where Harrison has provided the catering since 2011, and over 70 other secondary schools throughout England.
Harrison understands that what children and young people eat affects their health and their ability to learn and perform in the classroom. At Denefield, our catering team will provide nutritious, balanced meals, and we will work to educate the students on how to make healthier food choices. Our goal is to instil a love and understanding of fresh, healthy food at a young age that will positively influence them throughout life.
All staff will receive training in how to prepare and serve healthier food through Harrison’s bespoke Eat Well Live Well© training programme.
Our catering team at Denefield will work with the school and the school council to tailor menus to the tastes and preferences of the students. We will introduce further interest and excitement to our menus through themed lunches ranging from holidays like Easter and Christmas to cuisines from around the world, tying these into the school curriculum whenever possible.
If you require further information or have any feedback about the catering service, please contact Harrison Catering Services by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Denefield School operates a biometric cashless system for the school catering service. The system has been operating successfully in Denefield since November 2013. Cash payments can be entered onto the system by using the automatic cash loader terminal in the Montessori building or payments can be made on-line at www.scopay.com. To use this facility you will need to obtain a login from main reception.
To comply with updated legislation which came into effect on 1 September 2013, schools must obtain parental consent for the use of student biometric data, click here. You can withdraw your consent at any time by writing to the school.
