Healthy eating is an important part of our approach. We employ enthusiastic chefs who can establish good rapport with the students and get them to expand the range of foods they eat.
We plan to have a kitchen garden and resident egg-laying chickens, to give a strong emphasis on fresh produce and a balanced diet. We aim to help students recognise that healthy eating is critical for their all round wellbeing.
We recognise some young people with learning difficulties require modified diets or additional dietary supplements, so work closely with parents and students to ensure we meet their needs.
An example of the menu we may offer is as follows:
Many of the tasks the students undertake will help build competencies in citizenship, relating to others, managing situations and working as part of a team - all key to being fulfilled and employable adults.
