Classroom Kitchen brings the kitchen into your classrooms by providing the resources, ingredients and knowledge required to teach fantastically educational cooking and nutrition lessons.
Short and Long Term Contracts
Since 2014, Cooking and Nutrition has been a part of the National Curriculum in all primary schools. We understand that for many primary schools it is difficult to meet these requirements possibly due to resources, facilities or staff confidence.
Our service provides any school, small or large, the opportunity to provide their children with a structured whole-school cooking curriculum delivered to a consistent, high standard. Classroom Kitchen brings the kitchen into your classrooms by providing the resources, ingredients and knowledge to deliver fantastically educational cooking and nutrition sessions. Our whole school cooking curriculum pledges progressive and structured learning from Foundation Stage through to Year 6. Children will cook every session as well as learn where the food comes from, how it's grown, reared and processed and the value it has to a healthy, balanced diet. We advise working with each group in 3 to 6 week blocks throughout the year; however, our curriculum and planning can easily be adapted to suit your school's needs.
Within the time our teacher spends with each year group, the children will cook, bake and prepare a range of savoury and sweet foods that require different skills matched to the age group. At the end of working with an age group, our staff will assess your children providing this for your on-going assessment and give this to the class teacher.
Cooking is a crucial life skill and also one of the greatest expressions of human creativity. Our sessions will leave your children inspired and excited for more!

“James and his classroom kitchen came into my Year 3 class and it was fantastic!! James linked the morning brilliantly to our topic ‘The Victorians’. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of the topic. The children tasted gruel then made delicious salmagundy salad and victoria sponge cup cakes 🍰 . James was so well equipped, school didn’t need to provide anything at all. I’m looking forward to James and his kitchen visiting us again. I cannot recommend The Classroom Kitchen enough.”

“Fantastic, unique service tailored to our school's needs. The children loved the cooking and were engaged with the health and nutrition aspect too. Would 100% work with Classroom Kitchen again.”

“Classroom Kitchen offered students a fun and engaging session into nutritional cooking. Children need to be educated from a young age on healthy eating, I don't see a better way to do this than through Classroom Kitchen.”
