A semi-finalist on ITV’s Food Glorious Food helped pupils with autism from a Ravenshead school cook up a treat.

Angela Wilson, founder and owner of an authentic Indian cooking school, Anjula Devi, assisted five to 11-year-olds in their classes at Sutherland House.

She was taught by her father to cook authentic Indian food at the age of 10 and still cooks the same way now.

Angela regularly teaches children with SEN (special educational needs) through cooking.

“These kids never cease to impress me,” she said. I always focus on what they can achieve, rather than what they may not be able to achieve.”

Sutherland House School is a specialist day school run by NORSACA, the largest specialist autism charity in the East Midlands, for pupils and students with autism.

It operates across five sites in Nottinghamshire providing education provision for up to 94 pupils and students between the ages of three and 19.

Principal Maria Allen said: “Our school has exceptionally high staffing ratios in order to facilitate individual teaching sessions.

“We employ a range of specialists, including speech and language therapists, music specialists, occupational therapists and ICT specialists

“When someone with a skill outside our range, such as Angela, wants to come and share their amazing talents with our students, we will always welcome them.”
