We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a 'Golden Spoon' for Sustainability in the inaugural Jamie Oliver Good Food School Awards 2023!

On Wednesday 28 June, the school was featured on BBC's The One Show as Lioness Demi Stokes visited our school in Blackley, North Manchester to surprise the team and Eco Council with the award.

Jamie Oliver's HQ announced that, "Prospect House have gone the extra mile to ensure their school is as sustainable as possible. They introduced Meat-Free Mondays, as well as offsetting their meat consumption with plant-based meal alternatives (with students embracing this change whole-heartedly!). 

As well as regular recycling areas, they also have a food waste station that measures the school’s daily food waste, so they can tweak menu options according to student’s tastes and minimise waste. Food caddies in every classroom also ensure all food waste in school is recycled. There’s even an ‘Eco Warriors’ termly theme, which encourages children to think about sustainability outside of school by looking at areas of food, health, nature (biodiversity), energy, recycling, transport and climate.

Outside of the school building they’re growing ingredients they can use in the school kitchen, compost bins decompose any food and garden waste – and let’s not forget the two therapy pigs Sebastian and Dolores, who eat any leftover fruit and veg, and help the children learn about how to look after animals".

We are incredibly proud of this achievement, and Sustainability and Climate change are both areas we feel incredibly passionate about. A huge thank you to all who have supported and driven this important cause forward.
