In 2014, Becontree signed up to the Seed to Plate project- a borough run initiative. This project provided funding to be used towards creating growing opportunities for children.
As part of the action plan for the Healthy Schools silver award, we made the decision to target Reception, year 3 and year 6 with growing projects. The aim is to create a designated growing space for the children to cultivate their fruit and vegetables.
All of the school will be growing potatoes again this year too. See the McCain project for further details.
The photos of this area can be seen in the whole school part of the gallery.
