From September 2014, two free school meal schemes were introduced:
Universal Infant Free School Meals and Income Related Free School Meals.
Central Government is introducing a new initiative to provide free school meals to all children attending Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This is called Universal Infant Free School Meals, and you may see the abbreviation UIFSMs used.
However, it is vital that families still register with the Free School Meals Team, if they meet certain criteria, even if their child falls within the UIFSMs classes as above. This is important to the funding schools receive, as a specific fund called Pupil Premium is generated by this registered eligibility. This will amount to £1300 per eligible pupil. This funding is used to support eligible pupils with their education.
