KS1/2 PSHE/Citizenship - Food and Fitness 2

Description

Jeannette Orrey, a published cookbook author, early advocate of healthy food in schools, and one of Jamie Oliver's favourite dinner ladies, reveals how her school, St Peters Primary School in East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, became a trailblazer in providing healthy school meals.

This programme outlines their recipe for success, which in St Peters' case included opting out of the county council's catering scheme, and explores how the headteacher David Maddison and Jeanette have made healthy diet and fitness central components of school life.

St Peters' successes extend far beyond the kitchen. Serving school dinners to local senior citizens, or discovering where their food comes from by visiting a local farm, and exploring the social benefits of eating good food adds a welcome extra dimension to pupils' PSHE and citizenship education.

This programme discusses:

  • How to make food and fitness a central component of school life
  • How a healthy school diet can result in benefits across many curriculum areas

Part of the series: FE: Teaching for the Future
