At Harvington CE First and Nursery School we believe that cooking is a core life skill, and our aim is to give everyone the opportunity to plan, cook and enjoy delicious and wholesome dishes.
We teach children about food, different ingredients and the importance of health and nutrition. We teach them how to co-operate, share and follow health and hygienic practices. We teach the children skills that prepare them for life.
