D&T Food Letter (Providing Apron)

Dear Parent / Guardian,

Your son / daughter will continue to study Hospitality and Catering/ Food Preparation and Nutrition for their Design Technology GCSE option this year.

Due to new government guidance and COVID restrictions we have put in a number of procedures to ensure safe working practices for staff and students. This is constantly being reviewed in line with government guidelines.

In line with recent reviews from January onwards we are asking parents/ guardians to provide an apron that can be worn during a practical when your son/ daughter brings in their ingredients. This will not remain in school. Aprons can be bought cheaply online from as little as £3.50 and we advise a plain cotton style – an excellent stocking filler!

If there are any problems purchasing an apron, then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss this. You can contact me by letter, email or telephone.

Yours sincerely


E. Mason

Head of Food
