The tender exercise was carried out in conjunction with Commercial Procurement Consultation category. The opportunity was issued out via YorTender York Councils web portal. This scheme was approved at Cabinet Executive on 15/03/18.
A meeting of the Councils Executive will be asked next week to agree to an investment of £650,000 at Westfield Primary school
The money will be spent modernising and expanding school meal provision at the school.
A report describes the background to the plan. ”
The increasing number of pupils at the school has highlighted the problems the school currently has around the management of the school meals service as more pupils are having a school meal.
The proposed scheme will include work on both the dining and kitchen areas which will address current safety concerns and enable more pupils to access nutritional school meals”.
