Addington School



Hospitality at Addington


We have our exciting café: “KORE Café” in our 6th form block which gives our students the opportunity to serve juice and biscuits to each other at break time and to provide cakes and hot drinks to staff. This is fully run and operated by our students.


Intent: Giving our students the opportunity to run “KORE Café” café will give them valuable skills in food preparation, kitchen hygiene, customer service, service skills, working on a till and many more. We have a thriving hospitality sector in our local area and being able to put this experience on their CV’s will help some of our young people secure jobs in this sector, an industry which is accessible to our young people.


Implementation: We are lucky to have our “KORE Café” in the 6th form area. This gives students the opportunity on a rota basis to set the café up ready for service, dress appropriately, prepare and serve cakes and  drinks, serve their fellow students and staff and clean down afterwards. This is real service in a safe environment with the support of our TA’s and LSA’s.


Impact: Having this opportunity helps our students grow in confidence, helps them learn team working, improves their social skills and interaction with one another and will be great CV collateral too.
