"We chose to enter to show our commitment to providing good quality food to the students. It tests a company's ethical catering standards – whether it is sourcing its ingredients from sustainable suppliers, using local sources or using free range commodities.
"It also takes into account how well we communicate with our customers and ensure that our staff are well trained in food preparation and cooking skills."
Rob Sexton, chief executive of Soil Association Certification, said: "As a proud Bristol resident, the Soil Association is absolutely delighted that Henbury School, Orchard School, Oasis Academy Brightstowe and Bedminster Down School are making it a top priority to put freshly prepared, seasonal, high animal welfare food on the plates of Bristol's students."
