Partnership Schools: St Francis Primary

Partnership Schools - Glasgow

Case Study 2

This case study is part of our Partnership Schools Project which is a way to form school, family and community partnerships to make things better for young people in school. We're working with staff, parents, pupils and community to form an Action Team for Partnerships, which will develop a one-year action plan. To find out more about Partnership Schools please visit our website.


The Action Team at St Francis Primary in the Gorbals have made great progress with Goal 3 Wellbeing with the aim of improving the understanding of food choices on health and wellbeing and improving child/parent relationships.  Their School Gates Team organised Big Cook, Little Cook sessions for families and children which were so successful the team now plan to organise more family cooking classes as an after-school activity.  We loved hearing how children proudly took their fruit flans into classrooms; the other youngsters were soon encouraging their parents to sign up!

The Action Team also plan to run food hygiene courses for families; this not only improves cooking skills for the home but will also give participants a useful qualification.
