Cooking & Nutrition

Curriculum Overview

At Evolve Academy we aim to develop and foster an interest in and love of food that equips our pupil with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating. We aim to encourage pupils to cook, make informed decisions about food and nutrition, and provide learning opportunities that enable them to acquire knowledge to be able to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and later in life.

We deliver a curriculum that encompasses both practical and theoretical work which together enables pupils to acquire sound subject knowledge and develop practical skills. The curriculum is designed so that in each term they learn about: the food commodities; food provenance; principles of nutrition; diet and good health; the science of food, as well as cooking and food preparation.
