Food Champion News
You may have noticed Food Champions working in the school canteen. These students help to support the service and delivery during busy lunch times. Students will gain a wide range of skills and knowledge, including teamwork skills and working in a busy environment. The last inspection by the local EHO really liked the idea as it shows excellent links to education and the work place.
Congratulations to Reece, Heather and Chelsea, these students have all passed their Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering. ... See MoreSee Less

Students have their say as they host a visit from Cabinet Minister Andrea Leadsom
Today our students were given the chance to have their say on a range of burning political issues when Andrea Leadsom MP, the leader of the House of Commons, paid them a visit.
Our students tackled topics such as student loans, equality, house prices and lowering the voting age when Mrs Leadsom took part in a question and answer session at the school, in High Pavement, Sutton-in-Ashfield, yesterday.
Mrs Leadsom was at the school to find out more about how its uses a teaching resource called Votes for Schools, which is designed to promote the understanding of democracy and politics among students by supplying teachers with a host of resources in order to stimulate debate.
She watched while Year 10 students took part in a debate about vegetarianism before sitting down with a group from the school’s Sixth Form to find out their own attitudes towards democracy and answer questions on a series of topics.
She also spoke about her own campaign to improve the working conditions within the House of Commons by establishing a new complaints system for staff and MPs who reports being the victim of harassment and bullying.
Among the students taking part in the session was Jessica Willmott, 18, who spoke of her despair at the prospect of her ever being able to afford her own home in the current climate of high property prices and a low supply of housing across the UK.
She said: “It was really nice being able to speak to somebody directly involved in politics because when you’re a young person there aren’t many people you can talk to who can tell you what you want to know.
“She told us what the Government situation on housing, which is a big thing for me, because at the moment it feels like it’s very unlikely that I will ever be able to afford to own a place to live.”
After the question and answer session, Mrs Leadsom said: “I was very impressed with the students, who had strong views on all manner of subjects.
“People often say that young people aren’t interested in politics, but today showed that not to be the case. They are interested in politics, but they don’t find the political process engaging.
“The challenge for us is to engage with young people and get them to contribute to the political debate.” ... See MoreSee Less
