Thirsk Community Primary School

This school is enrolled on the Food for Life School Awards Package and is working towards their Bronze Award. As part of this work, they are developing a school food policy, involving pupils and parents in planning improvements to school menus and the dinnertime experience and providing every pupil the opportunity to visit a farm and take part in cooking and growing activities.

Served Here Status: Silver

This school serves a menu that has been awarded a Silver Food for Life Served Here award.

A Silver award means that the menu served meets all of our Bronze criteria plus the school has taken steps to focus more on ethical, environmentally friendly and local ingredients, and make healthy eating easier. 5% of the spend for the menu goes towards serving organic produce and points have been earned for spending on produce certified as sustainable and ethical. The school and its caterer have also worked together to take recognised actions to make healthy eating the easy option for pupils at meal times.
