Media[edit]

In September 2006 Jamie Oliver and Rawmarsh Community School were the subject of newspaper reports after a group of parents objected to Oliver's "healthy school dinners" scheme, in which pupils on site were fed 'healthy options' during school lunchtime pupil lock-ins. Some parents took orders over the school fence for nearby sandwich and fast-food outlets. The food was then delivered over the fence to waiting pupils.[2]
