Staff at Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy, have started an initiative where parents can join their children for lunch, sampling a range of healthy food on offer.
Parents can try the foods that are being served to the children on a daily basis.
It is also an opportunity for staff and parents to interact in a more informal setting and discuss what is happening at the school.
Paul Prest, Headteacher of Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy, said: “We are always looking for new ways to spend time with parents and carers and we thought inviting them for lunch would be a fantastic idea.
“I know that parents and staff found it very useful spending time interacting with parents and I had an opportunity to speak to every parent individually.
“As it has been such a great success, we will now be holding parent lunch events every term.”
