We were pleased to award Applecroft School an award to purchase a large range of food technology equipment.
We love to see the efforts and determination staff and schools put into achieving their learning objectives and Applecroft have managed to convert their nursery into a food technology room during these difficult times. We are proud to help them acquire the equipment which takes them over the last barrier to introducing the subject into their curriculum.
Odette Coe (Finance and Business Manager) explained the benefits of a strong, well-resourced food technology offering:
“We have already seen how having an understanding of food groups and how important they are for healthy living has had such an impact on children’s attitudes and wellbeing - to actually allow the children the opportunity to learning basic food preparation skills and move onto cooking meals will embed attitudes and wellbeing even further.”
Odette went on to explain how children will also benefit outside of the curriculum:
“The food technology area will also be accessible to our after-school club to allow them to do additional activities with the children in their care. The after-school club also run holiday clubs so will have the same access to facility.”
