Ickworth Park Primary, in Horringer, has become one of only 13 schools in the country to scoop the prestigious Food for Life gold award for its healthy and climate-friendly food culture.

The school teaches children to grow their own fruit and vegetables, during weekly visits to their allotment in the walled garden in Ickworth Park. Children are taught cooking skills and learn how to eat healthily and sustainably.

Two members of school staff and two children attended a ceremony at Kenton Hall Estate to receive the award.
