Food for Life BRONZE Mark

This school is achieving BRONZE

BRONZE schools serve fresh, seasonal school meals prepared by a well-trained school cook. Pupils and parents are involved in planning improvements to school menus and the dining experience via a school nutrition action group, boosting school meal take-up. Every pupil has the opportunity to visit a farm during his or her time at school, and opportunities are given for cooking and food growing activity.

About our school

Our school has recently launched a gardening project. We are keen to encourage our students to live and eat healthily, and be aware of how their food is grown. Students will be encouraged to take part in growing and cultivating fruit, vegetables and herbs, which will be part of the school lunch menu. Students will be given the opportunity during Food Technology lessons to use home-grown fruit and vegetables to compliment their creative dishes. Agincourt students will be able to share what they produce with the local community. Until the garden has been prepared the students will start off growing Herbs, as they become more accomplished and confident, they will take care of fruit vegetables and hopefully chickens, We would like this to be a positive experience for our students,
