Enrol your school for the Food for Life Schools Programme (Step 1 of 7)

Schools have told us how joining Food for Life has increased school meal take up, attendance, increased confidence of staff and enriched their school curriculum. It could also help your school meet Ofsted criteria.

We have two packages for you to choose from, the Membership Package or the Awards Package.

Membership Package: Just starting out? Become a member of our Food for Life community, get a taste of the expert resources we can offer and find out what’s involved in achieving one of our school awards before you upgrade to our Awards Package and apply.

Awards Package: Show the wider world that you’re doing fantastic work with your school food and food education, our Awards Package gives you all the support and resources you need to apply for and achieve your Food for Life award.

Confused by Catering?

Am I externally catered for?
Does your local authority or a private catering company manage your school kitchen or deliver hot meals to the school? Then your school is externally catered for.

Am I catered for in-house?
Does your school self-manage its catering service? Do you employ your own team, create your own menus, and manage the ordering process? If so you’re an in-house school.

Still not sure?
Ask your school administrator / business manager or give one of our team a call on 0117 314 5180.

Do you know your URN or Ofsted number?

You will need to know your unique school URN (Unique Reference Number, also known as an Ofsted number) before completing this form. 

URN's are always 6 digits long. These numbers are not the same as your LA and Establishment Number

If you don't know your URN, or want to check it's correct you can find it here.

If you can't find your URN, please get in touch and we can help. 

Entering the wrong URN could result in your school paying for an incorrect package.
