Look at the bumper harvest we have grown in our school allotment this year!

The children have helped to pick the produce, including potatoes and beans, which Mrs Walker and her staff cooked for our school lunches.

We all enjoyed eating what we had helped to grow this year.

Scholes J & I School AWARDED FOR THEIR HEALTHY FOOD ACHIEVEMENTS

Scholes J & I School has been awarded the Food for Life Partnership Silver award for its healthy and climate-friendly food culture.

The school is working with the Food for Life Partnership to transform the school’s food culture and that of its local community, by connecting the children with climate-friendly and healthy food.

In its quest to achieve the Food for Life Partnership Silver Mark, Scholes J & I School serves school meals on plates, not flight trays, has a range of free range, local and organic items on the menu. Pupils can attend a cooking club and get to cook and eat the produce they have grown in school. Parents and the wider community get involved too through food themed events.

Scholes J & I School is now working towards the Food for Life Partnership Gold Award – the ultimate award that recognises schools, which use practical learning experiences to reconnect young people to the food they eat, following the journey from field to plate.

Independent research, summarised in a new report ‘Good food for all’ reveals the success of five years of the Food for Life Partnership. The evidence from three independent research studies focuses in particular on four main areas of impact: children’s health, tackling inequalities, improving education, and local enterprise and sustainability.

The Food for Life Partnership has created network of over 4,500 schools across England committed to transforming their food culture. It supports them to provide fresh, well-sourced and nutritious meals and improve their overall lunchtime experience.  It helps children, adults and teachers understand the importance of good nutrition and where their food comes from through practical cooking and growing activities and farm visits.

 

The initiative is led by the Soil Association, bringing together the practical expertise of Focus on Food, Garden Organic and the Health Education Trust. It is free for schools in England to enrol and provides a wealth of resources to support their progress through the award framework.
