Policy position on the future provision of Halal Meat

The county council is considering its current policy for the supply of Halal meat to schools. The council currently provides both stunned and un-stunned halal meat in a small number of schools (27) across multiple districts, providing this service for the provision of school meals where there is the demand for it from the Muslim community and where the Headteacher and Governing Body request this for a proportion of their children. The county council is considering the proposal that, where halal meat is supplied, this must be stunned.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
