Council Education Catering Service recognised for top performance

We are proud to announce that our In-House School Catering Service has been recognised as one of the top 6 best performing Services in the UK for 2019/2020 by The Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE).

This recognition is based upon comparisons with other School Meals Services from across the UK and takes into account things such as food Purchasing Initiatives, School Meal Uptake, Management Costs, staff training/absence levels, communication to customers etc.

Tony Ward, Head of Highways, Facilities and Environmental Services, said: “We are really proud that the commitment and dedication of our Education Catering Service team has been recognised by the Association for Public Service Excellence.

“The Education Catering Service team has worked hard to maintain the quality of service provided across the county, never more so over the last 13 months during the pandemic. This really is a team effort and we are so pleased for all of them that their work has been noticed on a UK wide scale.”

APSE will include a case study about the Council’s service in their best practice studies publication which will be produced this summer.

The performance networks awards will be held online in June.
