As a school, we are immensely proud of the food culture we are developing in school. All our pupils from pre-school to year 2 pupils eat our school lunches, which are cooked fresh from scratch every day in our designated kitchen by Frances, our chef. When we say “live together to learn together”, we want to live those values!
Lunch begins at twelve and finishes at one o’clock and this is an important social time as well as time to refuel! When we sit alongside our friends and the adults in the school, eating the same meal together, we learn to talk, share and enjoy food. If our children attend the breakfast and after school club, Somerdale Sycamores , they will eat all three meals a day in school. Our chef Frances will be looking to grow a range of vegetables in our school grounds which will be used by the kitchen and will support our pupils to understand both about healthy eating and also sustainability issues.
We will be using food celebrations soon as a way to bring families in to school, as well as beginning family breakfast and community supper evenings as a way of sharing in the culinary delights of our school !
