School Dinners & Catering

Introducing our catering team

  • Kate Hewitt, Catering Manager
  • Cherry Birt, Catering Assistant

    I joined Coopers Edge School in July 2017 as a Catering Assistant. I enjoy working with our busy catering team providing good, wholesome food for our pupils and staff. I am currently completing an apprenticeship in Catering in the Workplace. 

  • Anila Patel, Catering Assistant

    I started work at Coopers Edge School in November 2012 doing supply work as and when required for the early year’s pupils. I have also carried out various different roles with the children in the school which have included breakfast club and assisting within the nursery.

    I transferred to join the catering team in November 2015 after having helped in the kitchen serving food on the hotplate during school lunch, which was then part of my duties as an MDSA in the school hall at that time. Aside from my normal duties in the kitchen, which involve backing up the kitchen team and serving the school lunches, I am also learning some of the basic food preparation skills and techniques. I do like to encourage the pupils to eat healthily and actively encourage them to try different foods so that they get a healthy and well balanced nutritious diet.

    Before I joined the school I worked in a play group for 12 years and enjoy working with children and seeing them develop and progress in their lives. I obtained an NVQ Level 3 in Early Years and Education which has helped me to be able to have a better understanding of dealing with children.

    Outside of work I enjoy cooking different types of food and socialising with my friends and family.
