Barnham Broom has been given a food hygiene rating of one out of five after its latest inspection by the Food Standards Agency.

The school in Norwich Road, Barnham Broom, achieved the low score, which came with the guidance 'major improvement necessary' after an inspection on April 13.

But the school says it has now fixed the problem which led to the rating.

While the school was rated 'good' in terms of 'hygienic food handling' and 'cleanliness and condition of facilities and building', improvement was needed in the area of 'management of food safety'.

The school's headteacher, Heather Benson, said: 'Since the visit we immediately addressed the paperwork regarding the management of food safety. Systems and checks are now in place to ensure our staff are confident to maintain standards.'

The 'management of food safety' means the school has to make sure food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.
