At our academy we use a dedicated system to help parents and carers make more informed dining choices for their children.
Saffron shows parents and carers full menu and allergen information, and allows them to search for a particular dish – with everything grouped by day and week according to what will be served at our academy.
This helps us to continue to put the health and wellbeing of our pupils first while increasing the transparency of the school meals we serve.
Quantity information the Saffron system provides for each menu item includes:
Totals also each come with a colour, similar to a traffic light system, denoting low, medium or high levels for each meal.
Allergen information given for each menu item also cross references what that item contains, or may contain, and includes:
- Sesame Seeds
Further details are provided for types of the above where appropriate too, such as wheat, oats, (almonds deleted as we are nut free), etc. Various search filters can also be applied including searches for Vegan, Vegetarian and Halal.
We hope this system proves useful to you, giving you ‘at-a-glance’ information to support the meal choices you make for your child or children.
