On top of managing the challenge of setting up and managing remote learning at Lea CE Primary School, following the recent announcement of the latest national lockdown; four members of staff at Lea CE Primary School have set themselves an additional challenge during January: to each run 120 km! 

The staff are doing this to raise money for an exciting new initiative at Lea.  

After February half-term, Lea School will be creating its own delicious and nutritious school meals on-site as part of their commitment to its healthy eating ethos.  Being able to produce fresh school lunches on-site will be of great benefit to pupils, providing them with a well-balanced, tasty, hot meal each day.   

The school will be connecting with local food suppliers to ensure fresh produce is used, thus reducing their carbon footprint as well as ensuring sustainability and traceability of all their ingredients.  

As part of their involvement in the Herefordshire Schools Eco-Hub, Lea School is also planning to develop a school allotment and fruit orchard, so that the children have the opportunity to experience first-hand the journey that our food takes, from earth to table!  

Beyond the delivery of daily meals, the school will be striving to empower the children to make healthy lifestyle choices by inspiring the children with hands-on food technology education.  They are also planning to engage with the wider community of Lea, in order to share the investment in their new kitchen facilities, through community cookery events and even a take-out supper club!
