Food For Life Bronze Award
We are delighted to be able to report that we have been awarded the Food for Life Bronze award for our healthy and climate-friendly food culture.
The school is working with Food for Life to transform the school’s food culture, by connecting the children with climate-friendly and healthy food.
As part of the Bronze award scheme - which requires you to fulfill 27 quite demanding requirements, we serve seasonal school meals, over 75% of which are freshly prepared by our experienced fabulous school cook, Pam and her team. We have put in place the opportunity for every pupil to visit a farm (starting with Year 2 in March), cook and participate in food growing activities during his or her time at school, and pupils and parents are involved in making improvements to the school’s menu and dining experience.
We have also been working very hard through the Gardening and Cooking Clubs to further the experience of the children and have many very exciting projects coming up in 2016.
