School kitchen revamp agreed

Published Friday, 14 March 2014

Enfield Council has agreed to replace the ageing and unsuitable kitchens at Brimsdown Primary School with state of the art new facilities that will meet the needs of the children there well into the 21st century.

The council’s cabinet agreed last night (Wednesday 12 March) to allocate up to £3 million to replace the existing kitchens either through further investment in the current buildings or by replacing them. Decisions on the detail of the design and contract award will be delegated to senior managers and Cabinet Members.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, Cllr Ayfer Orhan, said: “This initiative will make a real difference to our young people by providing a nicer and more welcoming environment for children to eat their lunch and will also upgrade the kitchen facilities at Brimsdown Primary School to give staff access to state of the art facilities.

 “Improving our kitchens is an investment in our children’s futures because it means we can ensure pupils enjoy at least one healthy and nutritious meal each day. Independent research has shown that a proper diet in children helps improve concentration and attainment in the classroom and helps tackle childhood obesity so we expect this project to provide permanent long term benefits to thousands of children.”.
