Food in schools across Scotland is a digital framework for everyone involved in food provision and food as a context for learning in schools across Scotland.  It requires education and catering staff to work together using relevant, high quality evidence to assess and understand what is working well and identify areas in need of improvement.

The design of the framework is based on a self-evaluation approach which promotes and supports transparency, openness and accountability.  When applied to food in schools across Scotland it will support a better understanding between actions taken and the impact these have on children and young people’s health and wellbeing.

The framework is supported and designed by experienced local authority catering and education practitioners, working in partnership with Education Scotland’s Health and Nutrition Inspectors. It takes account of the European Framework for Quality Management and the Public Sector Improvement Framework.
