New Erasmus+ funded project: European healthy pupils and skilled educators via integrated school food systems

New Erasmus+ funded project: European healthy pupils and skilled educators via integrated school food systems

We are delighted to announce that we have successfully received funding from Erasmus+ as part of a partnership of organisations and schools in the UK, Denmark and the Czech Republic.

‘European healthy pupils and skilled educators via integrated school food systems’ [EPESS] is a collaborative project taking place over 26  months and involving 10 partners The project aims to strengthen cooperation between organisations working towards a common goal: to promote health, learning and sustainable development through integrated school food systems. The project will facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and innovative ways of supporting and training school communities.

EPESS will strengthen international relationships and maximise the work that all of the partner organisations involved are delivering to improve attitudes towards health and food within schools. The project includes school staff exchange programmes, training webinars and sharing of best practice. 

We’re delighted that Washingborough Academy and Newlands St John’s C of E Academy are involved as partners in this project, and this will be a fantastic opportunity for these Food for Life schools to share their achievements with an international audience.
