Littleham Primary School became the first in Exmouth to be recognised for its work with school meals and food education.

Littleham Primary School became the first in Exmouth to be recognised for its work with school meals and food education.

The school was one of seven from across Devon to receive a bronze award from the Food for Life Partnership (FFLP). It was recognised for working closely with caterers on food quality and also running a successful school farmers’ market.

Senior teacher Sarah Padbury said some of the children had been part of the school council and had helped make lunch times a ‘positive eating experience’.

She said: “It was great to see the hard work has paid off and that the children feel inspired to keep learning about food and healthy living.

“The school plans to aim for the silver award next.”
