On Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th March, the Year 11 Food Preparation and Nutrition pupils completed their 3-hour NEA (Non-Examined Assessment). This is the most important part of their FPN GCSE so far and was structured like an episode of Masterchef with each pupil preparing, producing and presenting three dishes, with accompaniments in three hours.
The standard this year was very encouraging with every pupil achieving all three dishes in the time allocated. The tasting panel had a most enjoyable time sampling the products, and the pupils now just have the task of writing it all up before their deadline next Friday. Sadly, we cannot share photos of their live examination work until after the remark deadlines in November.
