Welcome to the Food in Schools primary training website

The food in schools primary training programme provides teachers with an excellent opportunity to enhance and develop their knowledge, skills and understanding about food and cooking in the primary curriculum.

It enables secondary food teachers to work with primary schools to provide an informative programme of professional development; the Food in Schools training focuses on practical solutions for the busy classroom.

The key aims are to:

  • increase teachers’ confidence and competence in teaching about food and nutrition;
  • increase pupils’ experience of working with food;
  • increase pupils’ knowledge of diet, nutrition, healthy eating, food chain principles, food hygiene and safety;
  • support the Healthy Eating core theme of the Healthy Schools programme;
  • help raise the standards of achievement in food education;
  • develop a supportive network between schools concerning food issues.
