Food for Life Award

Food for Life Bronze award

We are thrilled to announce that Grange Academy has achieved the Food for Life Bronze Award.  During the journey to achieve this recognition pupils and staff developed an understanding of the our culture of food education, healthy living and wellbeing.

In order to demonstrate that we’re serving up both fantastic food and providing an imaginative food education.

We are now on the next part of our journey to achieve the silver award.   We invite both pupils and parents/carers to be a part of this so please keep an eye out in the school newsletter and website for more upcoming information.

Grange Academy will now feature on the Food for Life website as an awarded school.  Click on the image to see the website page.
