Description

The successful tenderer will be required to provide catering services within The Priory Learning Trust. The successful tenderer will be required to provide all catering and vending services within the Trust, which also includes all hospitality and free issue requirements. The Priory Learning Trust is a recently established Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which includes currently the following properties where the successful contractor will be required to deliver a service and meet the requirements of the specification from the contract commencement. It is intended that the below Schools will form the Trust from 1.4.2017, in advance of this contract commencement on 1.8.2017: — Priory Community School; — Worle Community School. The contract being tendered is for 3 years in duration from 1.8.2017 until 31.7.2020, with the option to extend for a further term and will be guaranteed performance in nature. The tender project is seeking to appoint a Contractor whose initiative and innovation will be welcomed for the provision of all catering services within the Trust. The high quality service levels proposed, should maintain excellent standards throughout, resulting in a new food service offer with consistent standards of food operations across all Schools. These new standards of operation should meet the needs of the pupils moving forwards into this contract term. The current range of foods needs to be expanded along with the service provision. Regular customer engagement will be required to ensure this is the case moving into the contract term. The contract currently operates on guaranteed return per year with all free school meals and hospitality being charged based on consumption and at net food cost. The approximate cost of the contract per annum is 30 000 GBP plus VAT. The Multi Academy Trust is expected to grow in the number of schools becoming part of the trust during this contract period, and the provision of catering services within these schools when they have joined the MAT will fall under the scope of this contract. The successful contractor will be expected to provide this service within these additional schools using the same costing model, ratios, etc. that they applied to their successful tender submission for The Priory Learning Trust at the point of tender submission. The duration of contract for these schools will not be increased and they will join the contract for the remaining contract period that exists at the point of entry into the MAT. Please note: Further schools may be added to the contract during the tender process and during the life of the contract as detailed above.
