PUPILS and staff are celebrating after their school achieved an award marking its approach to healthy eating and practical food education.

Billingborough Primary School received its bronze award at the Food for Life Partnership Lincolnshire Award Ceremony at Woodlands Organic Farm near Boston on Thursday, September 15.

Pupils Max Searis, 10, and Ella Ward, nine, and members of staff attended the ceremony.

The children enjoyed their visit to the farm on the day of the presentation.

Ella said: “When we went to the farm we saw lots of curly coat pigs. We also got to feed them nuts. We then moved on and went to see the cows.”

The school works with the partnership to transform its food culture by reconnecting children with growing, cooking, eating and appreciating climate-friendly and healthy food.

The award means that the school has started to serve seasonal school meals with 75 per cent of the dishes being freshly prepared.

The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture.

The initiative is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and led by the Soil Association.
