UNIVERSAL INFANT FREE SCHOOL MEALS
(DOE: July 2014)
What you need to know:
As of September 2014, all children in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools in England will receive free school meals.
Studies show that well-nourished children fare better at school. The Free School Meals Initiative authors say that providing wholesome school meals, alongside good food education, is the best way to feed children.
The Department for Education (DfE) is giving £150m in capital funding to local authorities to support the roll-out of this policy in the 2014-15 financial year.
Schools will be expected to offer FSMs to all infant pupils, but will not be expected to make take-up of meals by infant pupils mandatory.
Schools have the freedom to set their own policies in relation to packed lunches, and that will not change.
The legal requirement on schools will be to provide a lunchtime meal that meets the School Food Standards, where they apply. We (the Dept for Education) expect that pupils will routinely be offered a hot meal option.
In order to use our On-Line Order Form to book Free School Meals you need to:
1. Register with your school for Free School Meals. Please contact your school admin office about how to apply. Note that all Reception 1 and Reception 2 children (i.e. those eligible for FSM under the new government initiative) will have been automatically registered.
2. Obtain a Sue Brady Catering Ltd.Free School Meals pass-code. If you order online and any of your children are eligible for FSM’s, you will be required to enter a FSM Passcode. Be sure to keep it confidential as you may become liable for charges if non-eligible parents use it.
Your school admin office should have sent out Passcodes to all parents that have Reception 1 & 2 children. Please check your school web-site or the last school Newsletter. In the event that you are unable to contact your admin office use the form below. Please only do so in an emergency as we are unable to routinely deal with individual parents.
