Hampshire Children’s Nursery Scores Poorly In Food Hygiene Inspection

April 27, 2014

A children’s nursery is among 14 places in Hampshire that have received poor ratings in recent food hygiene inspections. The Food Standards Agency scheme gives ratings to eateries from 0 – 5, with a score of zero meaning that urgent improvement is necessary.

In January 2014, inspectors scored the Coach House Day Nursery in Fordingbridge a rating of one.  The nursery provides care for 36 children between the ages of three months and five years. In a recent Ofsted report the nursery received an overall judgement of “good”.

The aim of the Food Standards Agency scheme aims to help consumers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, cafés, takeaways, hotels and food shops. Inspections capture a specific point in time and food outlets can improve their food hygiene ratings following the inspection.
