Home Economics


At The Polygon School we believe that Home Economics is a relevant subject and offer a weekly timetabled lesson to all pupils in KS3.

Pupils participate in activities in which they are encouraged to develop a range of skills including:


  • Planning

  • Food Preparation Skills

  • Organisational Skills

  • Time Management

  • Independent Learning


Development of these skills is important in order for pupils to lead an independent life and to make well-informed choices about their diet and lifestyle.

When your child attends a practical Home Economics lesson they have the option of paying 50p to take their cookery home or alternately they can cook for members of the school community to enjoy.
