Statement from the Headteacher

Dear Parents/Carers


This morning (Tuesday 17th October 2017) the Express and Star have published a story about the catering facilities at Ellowes Hall.

Ellowes Hall took over the catering from the Local Authority six years ago and until March 2017 the school held a 5* rating.

On 30th March 2017 the school was inspected and received a 0 rating. The issues raised in the report – which were not related to food hygiene, but structural issues, have all been/or are being addressed at a cost of over £10,000. This includes a replacement floor surface and redecoration.

A Capital Improvement Fund (CIF) grant for the value £273,000 has just been approved by the Department for Education DFE and work to completely replace the school’s heating and water boilers will commence during half term. These works are expected to take approximately 14 weeks.

We have since been inspected again (11 September 2017) and we were subsequently awarded 4* (good). Once the hot water issue is completely resolved, we expect our rating to return to 5*.

Our kitchen staff are a team of highly trained, experienced and dedicated staff. They operate an ‘open kitchen’ policy whereby all cooking and preparation areas can be viewed from the dining areas. Food preparation and hygiene has NEVER been raised as an issue at Ellowes Hall and we strongly feel that the story is seriously misleading.

Any parents or carers who have concerns should contact the school directly.

Thank you.

Mr A F Jasper

Headteacher
