The Birmingham schools and nurseries with the worst food hygiene ratings in the city - gallery

We’ve taken a look at the Birmingham schools which currently have the lowest food hygiene ratings in the city

Food hygiene ratings report on the standards of food hygiene found during inspections by local authority officials.

The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at premises and online so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food. A 5-star rating means hygiene standards are very good, while 0 means urgent improvement is required. A two star rating means improvements are necessary and a one star rating menas that major improvement is necessary.

Venues are marked on a number of factors, including the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.

Schools are also given food hygiene ratings. No schools in the city have a 0 rating - the worst rating possible, but two Birmingham schools do have 1 star ratings, and three city schools have 2 star ratings.
