Streatham Wells Teaching Kitchen Project

(London)

Streatham Wells School want to build a teaching kitchen that will give pupils a brilliant all-round experience unique in urban London: a chance to move from growing food in our edible garden, to using it to create healthy meals; extending to working together and growing business skills by selling produce to ensure the project sustainability

Our goals:

  • Tackling childhood obesity - the School Nurse has reported that in 2017 over 10% of children in our school are obese. Teaching children to cook appealing healthy meals will provide a foundation for them to develop healthy eating choices in the future
  • Extending the scope of our edible garden - our children will be able to cultivate, harvest, and cook their own produce. Furthermore, extended benefits are that children will become mini businessmen when they get opportunities to sell at school events
  • Life skills preparation - Each year group will be taught cookery skills that will grow in complexity as they progress through the school, by the time they leave the school they will all be able to cook a basic meal for themselves and their family

How we will achieve our goals

The community award would be used to refurbish a room within the school house to be used for cookery lessons for up to 12 pupils at a time. This would be in the form of extra curriculum cooking classes for the children, which the school could not accommodate within its own operating budget but which it deemed as an extremely beneficial learning aid

Where the money will go

Disadvantaged children. Our schools proportion of disadvantaged pupils eligible for the pupil premium, is above the national average. The pupil premium is government funding to help pupils eligible for free school meals or who are looked after. Some of these children come to school without breakfast, and some have poor nutritional packed lunches
