Canteen services

This menu starts on Monday 25th February

Norse Catering have developed this menu to emulate emerging food trends and food concepts found on the high street as well as offering popular, traditional dishes. The menu consists of four main food concepts:

Plated

For the more traditional dishes that will always be popular with students such as Roast Meat with all the Trimmings, Battered Fish and Chunky Chips and Spaghetti Carbonara with Garlic Bread.

Bowl

Very much taking inspiration from Bento Box and Poke Bowl trends, these dishes are attractively presented in shallow bowls where ingredients are ‘built up’ as opposed to all mixed together and are easy to eat ‘on the go’. Our bowl dishes consist of world-food flavours, such as:

Sticky Chinese Pork

Falafel Bites with Warm Quinoa and Lentil Salad

Moroccan Cous Cous with Spiced Cauliflower

Street

Street dishes are all about being hand-held food that is filling, appealing and can be eaten ‘on the go’. Norse Catering know from extensive surveys that Italian, Asian and Indian cuisine are very popular and work well when presented as Street food, dishes include:

Curried Chicken Chapatti with Chilli Mango and Indian Salad

Meatball and Cheese Sub

BBQ Pork Burger in a Bun with Apple and Celeriac Slaw

Sweet

Norse Catering’s range of sweet items are fresh, homemade and varied to suit all tastes. Dishes include:

Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies

Blueberry and Granola Crunch Muffin

Parsnip and Marmalade Cake

We know students are in a generation of conscious consuming and feel a responsibility to the world around them, this is important to us too so we have developed this menu allowing for one vegan dish per day to support increasingly popular plant-based diets.

A massive thank you to all our parents and carers for your feedback on how remote learning is going!

As we all learn more about how we can work together while apart, we will continue to refine what we do and get better at it. We will continue to contact you about how your child is doing and keep you informed of how best they can be helped. Stay safe.

There’s nothing ‘remote’ about learning at SHS!

Everything about the Covid crisis has been about distance. We must be physically apart, we might find ourselves emotionally apart and we have been compelled to be educationally apart.

Recent press headlines and discussions have focused on the difficulties of engaging students without in-person contact. Some press reports have used ‘statistics’ gathered in dubious ways to talk about the percentages of students who are actually working remotely. Indeed, a recent study by UCL has suggested that 20% of students have done ‘little or no school work’ since lockdown.

Whatever the alleged ‘national picture’ of student engagement in distanced learning, the crucial question that has emerged is: how do we engage learners when we are not together physically? It’s a complicated question and, as with most issues, there isn’t one solution, one style, or one computer program for increasing learner engagement and motivation. But the answer, as with many things educational, seems to be what many of us call ‘common sense’!

Research seems to say that ‘online’ teachers need to combine multiple strategies to reach learners and, unsurprisingly, they must be behavioural, cognitive and emotional. In short, teachers must set a variety of work. They must reply and feedback early and often; building relationships. There must be regular, simple parental feedback so that the carer knows what work is actually being submitted. There must be a caring ear and a personal call for students and parents.

Here, at Sheringham High and Sixth, we set work which can be done independently and in REAL households with all their individual restrictions such as connectivity issues and multiple use computers. We mark and feed back quickly. We track students fortnightly. Student managers and tutors ring home personally!

So, let me share our actual statistics since the closure on March 23rd at Sheringham High given that 20% of students nationally seem not to have been engaged by their staff. On average, each of our students has completed 73% of the work set on time. Only 0.4% of students has completed no work since lockdown. Over one third of all our Year 7,8,9 and 10 students has submitted over 90% of their work on time. A quarter has done ALL work set! Since March 23rd, our students have watched 7033 podcasts on our GCSE Pod portal; usage doubling since last year. Between March and June, 3079 individual pieces of work have been set by our staff for Years 7-10 and 435 for Year 12. Over half of our sixth form students has completed 100% of the work set.

If we believe what we are told about national statistics and the etymology of the word ‘remote’(to ‘push away’) what we have at Sheringham High and Sixth is an engaged, embraced learning community which is working well and bucking the national trend! Well done to students, parents, carers and staff!

Stay safe!
