Closing The Gap

How are you managing poverty in your school and lessons?

As a result of the Government’s recent White Paper ‘Levelling Up’, the Food Teachers Centre has been providing information and events to support food teachers with the Government’s ambition to place a focus on food education.

The in-service package aims to:

  • set out the current national agenda and how this directly effects what we do
  • outline the whole school food agenda for pupil health
  • review new research into poverty, deprivation and food teaching
  • investigate practical strategies for inclusivity and diversity
  • explore practical ways in which the food teaching community can close the attainment gap
  • look at how we can provide life changing opportunities for all pupils.
