Food Preparation and Nutrition Department Curriculum Intent

In the Food Preparation and Nutrition department, we aim for success in the following areas: 

  • To understand the relationship between diet, nutrition and health, including the physiological and psychological effects of a poor diet on health
  • Develop an interest in the creative aspect and enjoyment of food
  • To be able to access a variety of foods by developing confidence when using a range of practical skills
  • Develop an informed approach that will help pupils evaluate choices and decisions about their own health
  • Link theory based knowledge with practically based skills in order to promote healthy eating for a sustainable lifestyle

 We aim to foster an inquisitive approach to solving mechanical and physical problems and we hope that the pupils will develop a lifelong interest in Technology.
