Two school dinner ladies, who won awards for cooking the best meals in Cambridgeshire, is just the tip of the iceberg in positive steps taken to create a family atmosphere for children at two Wisbech schools.
Headteacher of Ramnoth and Nene schools and executive principal of the Elliot Foundation, Karen Crawley, said the awards presented to the dinner ladies last week is one of many good news stories at the school as staff work together with the community.
Lynne Ward and Sarah Taylor were recently awarded by Cambridgeshire County Council for being school catering team of the year.
Mrs Crawley said: “They work incredibly hard and do a phenomenal job which is great to see they have been recognised for it.
“It is one of many positive things that have happened in the last year since we became a foundation.
“We now have Skillforce, a Help for Heroes group that come in once a week to work with the Year Six children on things like life skills, team building and first aid.
“We are also working with Sport England to get grant funding to reclaim back our playing field which we want to turn into a place that can be used by our pupils instead of a piece of land that is generally used for dog walking.
