Cooking Nutrition

Cooking & Nutrition


At St. Paul's we are proud of our Cooking and Nutrition curriculum. We teach our children about food - what it is, where it comes from, and how it affects their bodies - whilst equipping them with valuable skills for life.

We are thrilled that each week every child has the chance to learn new skills and make delicious food. Our lessons take place in a purpose build kitchen pod and the children work through a progressive skills based curriculum from Reception class to Year 6.

Each class, from Year 1 to Year 6, has a cooking and Nutrition lesson in our purpose-built Kitchen Classroom. Pupils are split into two groups and cook for two hours fortnightly. The children follow a progressive curriculum, so that, for example, Year 1 learn basic safety knife skills, to year 6 cooking complete healthy meals from scratch.
