Ling Bob has registered for Faitrade, in recognition of using Fairtrade fruit.   

This is the first step to becoming a FAIRAWARE school​, this is the first Fairtrade School Award and is about finding out where our school is in terms of understanding Fairtrade and using Fairtrade products.

Following a succesful Faitrade Audit in KS2 and an Assembly about Fairtrade with Chef Ives and Mr Tipton who shared the audit results and showed a Fairtrade Film "My Next Fairtrade Adventure" with Tayna and Caleb. 

We have gained the Fairaware School Award.​


After our success of achieving the Bronze Food for Life award last summer Ling Bob has been chosen by Food for Life and the Soil Association as a good example of food in schools. A case study has been done on Ling Bob praising chef, the School Council and all involved in achieving the award. The school was praised for transforming school lunches, improving school meals, increasing children’s health awareness and working well with groups in the local community.  Chef was mentioned in the report as she had impressed the Food for Life team so much during the visit. The report commented “Chef transformed the school lunch experience;  presentation of food helps to make healthy choices easy and popular.”  Children’s engagement with and the teaching of the new food curriculum was also noted in the report; “Due to the consistency of messages that pupils receive in the classroom, the dining hall, wider school activities and displays boards across the school, pupils in the school have strong awareness of key healthy eating messages.” All at Ling Bob are proud to be a part of the case study. We are continuing to work towards the Silver Award for Food for Life. You could help us achieve this by sending photographs of healthy meals you have made at home with your children.
