Students in Year 7 have one double Food Technology lesson each week for 8 weeks.
Students will receive one piece of Food homework alternate weeks. Homework can consist of research and presentation preparation, sensory analysis and evaluation writing or preparation for practical work.
Pupils are given a baseline test in their first lesson.
Students’ progress and work is assessed mainly through teacher observations throughout every lesson.
Feedback is given to students in a positive and constructive manner which empowers the students to build on their strengths, address the areas for improvement, and support them to make the progress they are capable of.
Verbal feedback during lessons forms a significant portion of student assessment.
