Sunday Times School Meals Competition 2013


This competition was held as part of The Sunday Times’s campaign

to improve school meals and increase the number of children eating them.

Nationally the service is in crisis, with only about 40% of children nationwide now taking

a hot meal at midday. The rest bring in packed lunches or go to local fast food outlets.

More than 250 children entered the national competition, with 30 entries shortlisted.

We were delighted to learn that one of our Y5 pupils was chosen as the overall winner

- with a poem in praise of our school dinners.
