On Monday, our Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputies, had the opportunity to visit our local Foodbank. They were accompanied by a member of staff, and together they helped deliver our Harvest Festival donations to those who need it the most. They were really interested to find out how the Foodbank operates and appreciated all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.

We were delighted to welcome Roots to Food to Shorne Primary School on Monday. They offer fun, interactive, educational and nutritional cooking workshops for schools and delivered a fantastic masterclass with our KS2 children.

A huge thank you to Darren for his support and culinary expertise!
