of the FiS Programme
The DfES strand of the FiS Programme comprises eight curriculum
focused projects which cover teacher training and professional
development, as well as development of guidelines, resources
and curriculum materials.
The DfES projects
In the DfES strand of the Food in Schools
programme, primary and secondary schools are encouraged
to look at all aspects
of food during the school day through an 'audit' and to develop
whole school food
policies. Schools are also encouraged to
set up local food
partnerships, where secondary food specialists
train and support their primary colleagues, helping them
to work towards the National Healthy Schools Standard.
