Cooking and Nutrition at Mellor is taught as part of the Design and Technology curriculum, in line with the National Curriculum and the Food for Life programme.
As part of their work with food, pupils are taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Instilling a love of cooking in pupils will also open a door to one of the great expressions of human creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.
