Food Technology

Wonderful life skills are developed and the masterchefs of the future are created.

Aspects of each area within the syllabus are taught to each of the year groups so that as skills and understanding improve, more advanced aspects of each element are introduced. We adopt a flexible approach to teaching within the syllabus. This allows us to link with outside influences, events and trends and to take advantage of educational opportunities as they arise. This flexible approach ensures that lessons are contemporary and topical.

Aims of the Food Technology Department

  • To establish a healthy interest in all aspects of food from an early age
  • To teach pupils to enjoy food and to be able to make informed choices
  • To equip children with useful life skills
  • To develop personal, social and health education through the teaching of nutrition, principles of healthy eating, food safety and hygiene
  • To make pupils aware of all aspects of food production ‘from farm to fork’
