The LDA Food & Nutrition Curriculum intends to inspire pupils to consider a healthy lifestyle by acquiring the culinary skill and nutritional knowledge to become healthy in mind, body and soul.
The Food Preparation & Nutrition curriculum at Lord Derby Academy builds on the National Curriculum. At LDA, the FPN curriculum is ambitious and designed to give all pupils at Key Stage 3 the opportunity to experience working in a practical environment where they will develop both academic and practical transferrable skills. The knowledge of other subjects such as maths and science are drawn upon and applied to the practical subject content. Pupils will also develop life skills associated with food preparation and nutrition, and healthy living.
Disadvantaged and pupils with SEND are able to fully engage in the curriculum. Funding for disadvantaged pupils enables the department to provide additional resources such as ingredients for food and nutrition lessons, ensuring that all pupils are included and gain the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
The curriculum is designed to teach acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

In year 8 and 9 pupils will experience one lesson of Food Preparation & Nutrition per week. Pupils will also be exposed to a range of cuisines from different cultures and develop food preparation skills for life. During the options process in Year 9, we strive to encourage pupils to consider the diverse range of careers in the hospitality, catering and food industries.
|Rationale: Year 7 pupils are invited to take part in a range of enrichment activities via the LDA Food & Nutrition Competitions Google Classroom.
