Aspects of a curriculum overhaul

20th July 2007 at 01:00
British Food Fortnight (September 22- October 7) welcomes the news that cookery may be included as a separate subject in a more flexible secondary curriculum. But schools also need help to achieve this. In particular they need resources, skilled cookery teachers and cooking equipment. British Food Fortnight is already addressing this by providing all primary and secondary schools in the UK with the resources, manpower and equipment they need to incorporate cookery within the curriculum. During the fortnight, schools are invited to teach pupils about the diverse and delicious range of food available, the benefits of healthy eating and the pleasures of eating fresh, seasonal and regionally distinct produce. Many schools are inspired to incorporate cookery within their existing curriculum and these activities often continue throughout the academic year. Teachers who would like assistance in organising cooking activities are encouraged to visit our website. l
