Collaton St Mary Primary School

I enjoyed meeting with the children and Headteacher, Penny Millington at Collaton St Mary Primary School for the Record-breaking Roast Dinner Day. Wednesday is roast dinner day and  the most popular meal of the week. Teachers have noticed that those children who have a good lunch have a more settled afternoon and are able to learn better. Staff volunteer for lunchtime duty to reinforce a quality lunchtime with a freshly prepared, locally sourced food.

It was wonderful to see a school committed to a return to sociable lunchtimes, complete with tablecloths, fresh flowers and a commitment to teach the children where their food comes from.
