School Food Standards
We have been in contact with the DfE’s Healthy Pupil’s Unit to acquire further information on Ofsted’s plans for thematic review on obesity, healthy eating and physical activity in schools in 2017 and the planned new voluntary healthy rating scheme for primary schools. We were informed that both of these programmes are still in the development phase. There will be a formal consultation on the healthy rating scheme in the coming months and we were advised to contact Ofsted about the thematic review with Linda Cregan of the SFPA offering to put us in touch with the Ofsted representatives she has been dealing with.
Additionally, as we have previously noted, the childhood obesity plan published in August proposed revisions to the School Food Standards based on the latest dietary advice on sugar and nutrition. We are currently gathering further details on these revisions and monitoring for a potential consultation.
