FOCUS ON FOOD TRAINING AT RIVER COTTAGE CHEFS SCHOOL - 05.02.15 (1)Any school can use the Food for Life framework and work towards a Food for Life Award. It is one way for schools to meet the recommendations of The School Food Plan, and also helps with the new Ofsted requirements for schools to evidence “a culture or ethos of exercise and healthy eating throughout their entire inspection visit, in classrooms as well as the school canteen. They will look at the food on offer and visit the canteen to see the atmosphere and culture in the dining space and the effect it has on pupils’ behaviour.”
