Owing to our successful campaigns in London schools, we are now able to influence government policy on school food.

Healthy Schools Rating Scheme

As part of the response to the Childhood Obesity Plan (chapters 1 and 2) the UK Government proposed a Healthy Schools Rating Scheme (HSRS) which would be used to evaluate how schools are supporting children to keep themselves healthy.

Save Our School Food Standards

In 2011, together with Jamie Oliver, Children's Food Campaign, LACA, Children's Food Trust and Food for Life, SFM asked supporters to lobby their MPs to sign EDM 54, calling for the mandatory school food standards to apply to all schools without exemption.

School Meals

Universal Infant Free School Meals

Since September 2014, school meals have been free to all infant school children. We need to work hard to safeguard this policy and demonstrate to government the benefits of making school meals free.
