Cooking is currently an element of design and technology in the national curriculum. In his recent announcement on the primary curriculum (Monday 11 June 2012), the Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, confirmed that design and technology will continue to be compulsory in all maintained schools in Key Stages 1 and 2, and the Department is now considering what the content of design and technology should be and on which it will consult.
