Food letter for Year 7 students

August 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,

In order to make Food Technology cost effective for parents and carers, we have a system in place to ensure every child has the opportunity to access ingredients from school. Therefore, for all students in year 7 the Food Department will provide all their ingredients and containers for the term.

For the whole school year we will require the one off payment below in order to cover the costs, please can you pay this via your parent pay account prior to Friday 9th September 2022.

Year 7- £30 This will pay for all ingredients and containers needed for the 3 terms.

Student recipes across the 3 terms are: Mac & Cheese, Stir Fry, Shortbread, Cookies, Flapjack, Quesadillas, Pizza Baguette, Spicy Rice Burrito and Vegetable Chili. In doing these recipes students will learn vital skills in chopping, whisking and blending flavours. This will prepare students for the content that they study in year 8.

Please note if your child receives free school meals then no payment is required, in any year, as the pupil premium funding covers the cost for these students. Additionally, if payment is not provided then we will assume ingredients and containers will be provided by yourselves. It is vital that all students partake in practical food lessons as this forms part of the Food National Curriculum.

If there are any problems, or if you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Food Department.

Yours sincerely,

Miss M Powell

Head of Food Preparation and Nutrition
