Eat Them To Defeat Them

Eat Them To Defeat Them works because three essential parts come together. The TV advertising campaign and celebrity support builds excitement and the programme in schools encourages children to try more vegetables. The take home packs - including a reward chart, stickers (plastic free) and a puzzle book funded by Change4Life help parents and carers to repeat, reward and normalise good veg-eating habits.

Meet the Team...

This has been a challenging year for our team in the kitchen, but as the school year moves on, so does the reintroduction of hot dinners. 



Following the success of the Food For Life Bronze Award, we are working towards SILVER!


We are still providing opportunities for cooking within our class bubbles. 

Fruit Kebabs


If you would like to share any photos of home cooking and family meal times please send them to the school office (FAO Miss Wilkes) and I will add them to the website!

We hope to invite parents to join us for a ‘virtual lunch’  in the near future.

Watch this space...

Looking Forward...

In Spring each year group will be allocated a garden space to grow food. This can be used in cooking projects and by the school kitchen. You can’t get fresher than that!

Do any of you have a ‘garden kitchen’? 

Please share any photos of your growing and cooking experiences!

Growing tips very welcome!

Food for Life tips

Bridgetown achieves Bronze

Food for Life Award

Year 3 parents lunch


It was great to see so many parents and grandparents join the year 3 children for lunch. The parents commented that it was lovely to spend time with their child at school and share their lunchtime with them. Thank you to the kitchen staff for all their hard work, the parents had lots of positive comments and were impressed by the quality of the roast dinner.   

Grandparent Gardening Week Event


Many thanks to all the grandparents and children who took part in the gardening event.  It was a great success and it was fantastic to see so many keen gardeners helping us to transform the school garden. 





We are delighted to have achieved the Bronze Food for Life Award in the summer of 2019, after two years of hard work.  In doing so, this has led to many more cooking opportunities for the children as well as improving their dining experience at school.


Thank you for all of your support in gaining this award.  

Food Market


The whole school had lots of fun preparing and cooking their produce  as well as designing posters to make their stall stand out.  Year  5 particularly stood out, not only did they come up with space themed names , they raised the most money too!  Lots of delicious snacks were sold and altogether we raised £167 for the Multi Use Games Area.

Roast Dinner Day

This week, we took part in 'Food for Life's Great Roast Dinner Day'. Many of the foundation children's parents or grandparents joined them for a roast dinner. The children really enjoyed sharing what they do on a daily basis in the lunch hall with their lunch guests.  Later in the year, there will be further opportunities for parents and grandparents  from other year groups to come and experience our lovely roast dinner.



Food Group Survey 


Our student food group want to find out your thoughts on school lunches and to see if you would like to get involved with projects around cooking and growing in the future. We would appreciate it if you could complete this short survey.



We are doing a great job at composting all our fruit and vegetable peels from our snacks. We look forward to being able to use the compost on our school garden in the future.
