How Good Is Our School? Hungry for Success: Benchmarks for Self-Evaluation. Self-Evaluation Series
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
This document is intended to build on the advice given in the publication "How good is our school?" It is intended to be of use to staff in local authorities and schools who are involved in implementing the recommendations of "Hungry for Success." This guide can be used to support in evaluating effectiveness in implementing "Hungry for Success." It has been prepared using evidence from inspections of "Hungry for Success" in primary and special schools. Almost all of the themes and illustrations can, however, also be used for self-evaluation in secondary schools. The guide provides a cluster of quality indicators that focus on key features which relate to the recommendations and principles of "Hungry for Success." While quality indicator 7.4--Leadership--has not been included within this cluster, it is recognised that the commitment of headteachers and other senior managers in schools is crucial to successful implementation of the report's recommendations. In evaluating the effectiveness of the implementation of "Hungry for Success," it is important to consider, in particular, the outcomes and impact of action taken to improve school meals and other aspects of food in schools. Have changes in lunchtime menus, presentation of food and arrangements in the dining room resulted in more pupils taking school meals? Are pupils choosing and eating healthier options? It is recognised that the full impact of the implementation of the range of recommendations within "Hungry for Success" will take some time to become established. However, local authorities and schools should maintain a focus on evaluating the impact of their actions on overall improvements in the quality of food in schools and health promotion more generally.
