Assessment & Monitoring

At the start of year 7, students area given benchmark test. This is completed during two lessons and covers practical skills used in the preparation of hot and cold food. This information assists us to outline prior learning and to gauge attainment. Throughout year 7 – 9 students are regularly assessed and they are given end of year and KS3 targets in order to raise attainment.

In each classroom the levels for progression are displayed and each student receives a personal copy for their use to help them progress up the levels.


Individual food rooms are used for support clinics and practical work at lunch time and students are encouraged to use the VLE to find recipes should they miss a lesson.

All students are encouraged to continue practical cookery skills at home.


Individual food rooms are fully stocked with the specialist equipment needed for each year group.
