Welcome to Food Preparation & Nutrition (& Child Development)
Food Preparation and Nutrition lessons include a variety of practical work, theory, demonstrations and investigations. The students especially enjoy the practical element as this is their chance to shine and be creative. They learn to work as a team and make new friends from other form groups.
Here at Salendine Nook our fresh and exciting GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition equips students with an array of culinary techniques, as well as knowledge of nutrition, food traditions and kitchen safety. This course will inspire and motivate students, opening their eyes to a world of career opportunities and giving them the confidence to cook with ingredients from across the globe.

Below you will be able to read what your child is studying during each half term. ‘Key Stage Three’ will give an overview of study for Years 7, 8 and 9. ‘Key Stage Four’ will outline teaching content for Years 10 and 11.
The ‘Curriculum Rationale’ will give you the reasoning behind why we teach your child what we do and why we have chosen to order the topics in the way we have.
We hope that you will find this information useful, but if you require anything further about your child’s education in this subject please do not hesitate to contact the Head of Department.
