The successful Supplier will be required to provide catering services at Waverley School and Waverley Studio College. Waverley School is larger than the average-sized school. It is an all through school for pupils aged 4-19. Waverley School moved into a brand new purpose built facility in 2013 and has continued to thrive. It is the head teacher's and governors' aim to continue to build on this and wish to employ a suitably skilled, flexible and experienced catering contractor who will recognise the changes that have taken place over the past few years, providing advice and expertise. This will be a major benefit to the school and will contribute significantly towards the Client's ongoing objectives. The contract covers the scope for the provision of all catering and vending services, which also includes all hospitality and free issue requirements. The contract being offered will commence on 1 August 2018 for 3 years, with the potential to extend for up to a further 3 years, and will be on a guaranteed performance basis. The Supplier will be expected to introduce exciting new food concepts in partnership with the Client for the future. The proposed food concept should create an improved ambiance within the dining room and a more pleasant dining experience for both the students and staff. The Client has taken the decision that all meat served will be certified by the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC UK). The Halal Monitoring Committee is an independent, not for profit, registered charity organisation whose main aim is to certify the production of genuine Halal food. HMC complies with the UK Laws for food production, as well as Islamic dietary compliance Laws. HMC promotes animal welfare, issues of food safety, hygiene and quality in compliance with UK Law and within the teachings of the Islamic faith. HMC works with companies who are involved in the production and supply of Halal food, to independently certify all products to provide assurance to the Muslim community that all food meets the high standards of Halal. The current cost of the contract including all FSMs is circa 250 000 GBP plus VAT per annum.
