Food for Life Partnership for School Meals
To be awarded this Gold Award our school kitchen and staff have ably demonstrated progress in the following areas:-
Food leadership - whole school approach and food policy
Food quality and provenance - seasonal, fresh, local and organic ingredients
Food education - cooking, growing and farm links
Food culture and community involvement- dining experience and community links
Gold schools are hubs of good food culture in their community, actively involving parents and community groups in cooking and growing activity. School meals area at least 75% freshly prepared, 50% local and 30% organic and the majority of school pupils are choosing to eat school meals.
Groups of pupils are actively involved in the life of a local farm and every pupil has the opportunity to experience growing some food. Every pupil will have 12 hours or more of practical cooking per year.
