Food Technology

“Simple cooking is a fundamental skill that every person should master – it is at the heart of tackling obesity and will enable future generations to understand food, diet and nutrition, and put together healthy meals for their entire lives.” – Ed Balls

Food Technology is challenging, creative and practical; an essential life skill which prepares the pupils of James Bateman Middle School for life after education and beyond.

In Food Technology students are taught about diet and nutrition, food hygiene and safety awareness in practical situations. Practical food preparation and handling skills are a key aspect of our Food Technology curriculum, as is teaching them about ingredients their functions and uses, so they can make their own informed decisions.

Food Technology embraces the basic principles of food education, but pupils are also encouraged to develop their knowledge and skills through problem-solving and having the opportunity to celebrate creativity, in a safe and supportive environment.
