A little ring-fencing please!

27 July 2017

Back in March we excitedly announced the Healthy Pupils Capital Programme. Now it appears the coffers have already been raided.

An article in the Guardian confirms the news that the Department for Education will be using the cash raised through the sugary drinks levy to plug holes in the education budget. With little or no action coming forth from the Childhood Obesity Plan (we'll be celebrating its first birthday in a couple of weeks) it now appears they'll be even less money to fund much needed healthy eating programmes. We'll be picking up this conversation in September and trying to convince the DfE that the Healthy Pupils Capital Programme needs to be ring-fenced for ... healthy pupils!
