    B934 - School Meals Nutrition Bill 2016, The Hon. barnetlad MP
    School Meals Nutrition Bill 2016

    A BILL TO
    Extend the Standards for School Food to all Schools in England

    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

    1. The Standards for School Food in England (hereinafter referred to as ‘Standards’), as published in January 2015 by the Government, shall apply to all schools in England.
    2. The exemptions for Academies and Free Schools established between 2010 and 2014 shall be repealed.
    3. The Standards shall be extended to fee-paying and other schools independent of local authority control.
    4. OFSTED shall consider adherence to the Standards in any inspection of and assessment of a school.


    Title, Extent and Commencement of Bill
    5. This Bill shall be known as the School Meals Nutrition Bill 2016
    6. This Bill shall apply to England
    7. This Bill shall take effect from 1 September 2016

    Notes
    The Schools Food Standards were originally introduced by the then Government between 2006 and 2009, and have been subsequently amended. There were exemptions for academies and free schools established between 2010 and 2014, though these schools were encouraged to follow the Standards.

    This Bill applies them to all schools, regardless of governance, control or whether or not they are fee-paying.

    Aye. I'd sooner just abolish academies and free schools, but this is a good start.

    No, I support no measure to increase state control of independent schools who usually outshine state schools.

    I completely agree with this bill. I like how it applies to 'all schools' as even lunches in public schools are not nutritious.

    In regards to food maybe, but if you mean education, I think you'd find that there's not much difference.

    I also do love the many bills we have that lack penalties for failure to follow the law.

    hmmmm, I think that 1.4 could make this a bit unpractical and there should be some form of punishment but overall I'm in favour.

    Being part of the OFSTED framework carries in itself a penalty in that a school can be judged and if failing, can be placed in special measures.

    Not all fee paying schools are like Eton. Some of them have pupils that don't put any part of their anatomy near a pig's head.
