School Food Standards
Both our conversations with the Department for Education and recent answers to PQs have shown that limited progress has been made on the revisions to the School Food Standards for England and the Healthy Rating Scheme for primary schools. We are continuing to chase for an update on the Ofsted review of sports and nutrition in schools.
We have also written to the Department for Education with a request to discuss school milk receiving support from the proceeds of the sugar levy. The response we received was non-committal, but the officials were happy to meet to discuss this and other issues later in the year.
Additionally, the Scottish government has begun a review of the country’s own school food regulations. We have written to Education Scotland highlighting the importance of daily milk provisions.
