This school year we have teamed up with Food For Life, an initiative which brings schools, nurseries, hospitals, care homes and their surrounding communities together around the core ethos of healthy, tasty and sustainable food.
As a school we feel strongly that children should eat a well-balanced, healthy diet and are educated to make good food choices. We aim to take a whole school approach that sees our children grow their own food; are provided with cooking and growing opportunities and are served freshly prepared, well-sourced meals.
Food for Life has a three tier award scheme; Bronze, Silver and Gold. Since September 2017 we have been working our way through the Bronze level and we are already a third of the way there!
We have established a ‘Food Council’ comprising of children across the year groups who will be asking lots of questions about what we are eating and where our food comes from. They will also be setting up a blog to share our award progress with parents, recipes from our chef Greg and helpful tips about what we are growing in the garden.
