    V934 - School Meals Nutrition Bill 2016, The Hon. barnetlad MP
    School Meals Nutrition Bill 2016

    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 The exemptions for Academies and Free Schools established between 2010 and 2014 shall be repealed.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

    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, there is no argument against this which isn't the whole infantile 'waaaaaaaaaaaaaah waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah state control' thing.

    No, independent schools should be free from government bureaucracy imposing requirements on them.
