A FITNESS coach and social media star visited a Kidderminster school to surprise its catering team with a prestigious award.

Exercise guru Joe Wicks presented chef James Sommerville and his team of four from Wyre Forest School with the coveted Catering Team award in Jamie Oliver’s inaugural Good School Food Awards.

Pupils attending the school have a wide range of special educational needs, with the chef providing a "fantastic" menu for students daily.

The team also caters for pupils who need pureed food, who are peg fed and for all types of allergies and dietary requirements.

James enjoys receiving the pupils' feedback about his food and tries to make amendments that the pupils ask for.

The school was praised for providing a range of healthy and nutritious main courses and puddings each day.

The catering team was also praised for its attention to detail, noticing if one child out of the 331 pupils is not eating properly or if their eating habits have changed.

They will then work with class staff and the pupil to find out how they can be tempted to broaden their choices.

Pupils have been encouraged by the team to try the other meal options, even if they have not ordered them, with this being free of charge.

Joe, who judged the category and presented the school with a 'Golden Spoon' prize, said: "The standard of the nominees in this category was incredibly high but the huge amount of care, love and nurturing that James and his brilliant team bring to the food they serve the children in Wyre Forest School just blew me away.

"Truly worthy winners and being able to surprise him and the team with the award made it a really special day.”

The winners across eight different categories were chosen by Jamie Oliver and his celebrity judging panel from nearly 2000 entries across the UK.
