Sugar Tax Fund
The Healthy Pupils Capital Fund (HPCF) is money levied by the UK Government from the soft drinks industry. The levy taxes the soft drinks industry on any product with a sugar content over 5g per 100ml and is widely known as the Sugar Tax. The HPCF (or Sugar Tax Fund) is intended to improve children’s and young people’s physical activity, healthy eating, mental health and wellbeing and medical conditions.
Our schools have had some really exciting projects funded this year through the Sugar Tax fund and we will be bringing you the latest updates including photos when we receive them. Watch this space!
