Curriculum for Food and Nutrition
Yr 9
Yr 10
Yr 11

In Food Technology, cooking and nutrition will be taught as part of ‘designing and making’. The content in ‘cooking and nutrition’ indicates knowledge, skills and understanding that underpin high quality design and making with food.  As part of their work with food, students will be taught how to cook and apply the principles of healthy eating and nutrition. Instilling a love of cooking will also open a door to one of the great expressions of creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables students to feed themselves and others affordably well, now and in later life.

During KS3, students will become competent in a range of cooking techniques, for example: selecting and preparing ingredients; using utensils and electrical equipment; applying heat in different ways; using awareness of taste, texture and smell to decide how to season dishes and combine ingredients; and adapting and using their own recipes. Recipe books will be issued to all students at the start of their food module.

During KS4, students will have to complete two Controlled Assessments, one in Year 10 and one in Year 11, and will be assessed 60% design and make and 40% examination.
