September's Super Bloggers are...
10 October 2012 - We’ve had lots of fantastic blogs to read over September, well done and thanks to all the schools who have been keeping us up to date with their inspirational FFLP stories. Keep up the great work everyone!
It was difficult to select just one, so we’re pleased to let you know that September’s super bloggers are Market Rasen Primary School in Lincolnshire, and Cambo First School in Northumberland.
Special mention also goes to St Peter's CE Middle School, The Gartree Community School, Ashbridge Independent School & Nursery and Faldingworth Community Primary School.
Market Rasen has been building FFLP into the curriculum and encouraging a whole school approach to food education, as well as concentrating on Food for Life activities.
“As we started the new term the whole staff agreed that to achieve the Silver award we would make Food for Life one of our priorities for the coming year. It has been written into the School Development Plan and the governors have signed off an action plan. Staff are now planning to build Food For Life into their lessons and extra curricular clubs and this will be reviewed at the end of each half term to monitor our progress.”

Cambo First School kicked off this term’s blog with some big news; they are taking their catering service in house and are very excited about this development, and about the possibility of progressing to Silver and Gold. They said:
“As a small school I had always believed that this was impossible! Never say never is out new motto!.. We now employ our own cook, we buy in services regarding our menus and training for the cook and lunch time supervisors. We have negotiated contracts with providers establishing what we want in our food e.g. organic, free range etc”
Paula Cumings, Headteacher was very pleased to find out they were Super Bloggers: ‘How fabulous! When blogging we didn’t actually think of being in a competition we just wanted to share our fantastic news!”
