“Our school has achieved a Food for Life Bronze Award, which means that the food we served has been rigorously assessed to ensure it’s high quality, healthy and sustainable. 

 As a Food for Life Bronze school we: 

  • Have committed to improve their school food culture by developing a school food policy. 
  • Meet Bronze Food for Life Served Here Award standards which shows that school food is healthy and uses seasonal ingredients that are at least 75% freshly prepared.  
  • Involve pupils and parents in planning improvements to school menus and the lunchtime experience, boosting school meal take-up. 
  • Give every pupil the opportunity to visit a local farm, and take part in cooking and food growing activity.”
