At the Education Catering Service in Plymouth, we provide our high quality, locally sourced, fresh and seasonal school food to the majority of primary and special schools across Plymouth, as well as individual contracts with newly converted primary and secondary academies. In 2005, when I came into post, the team immediately started work on reviewing all our school kitchens: were they fit for purpose? And - even more importantly - was the food we were sourcing and putting on our menus fit for purpose?

September is here and we might feel justified this year in finally giving up on the summer and embracing the new (school) year. Unlike the chilly, dark and bleak new year in January, the September new year is a more fruitful affair. Both in the sense of a new beginning for children starting school or moving up a year and in the sense that the new season's Bramleys are here, Victoria plums are putting in an appearance and, whilst the Discoveries may be all but over, we have months of apply joy to look forward to. So for me, we should light the fireworks and make the resolutions in September not January, but perhaps that’s just the teacher in me.

Just got out of the Food for Life Partnership workshop at the conference. I can listen all day to the impact the programme has had in schools, and I was particularly taken with both Doug Bone, the head of Wandle Valley school in Sutton, and Stephanie Wood from School Food Matters.

It’s not always about winning of course, but the fact the Food for Life Partnership (FFLP) has today won the Derek Cooper Award at the 2011 BBC Food & Farming Awards feels very well deserved.
