Universal Free School Meals

Universal Free School Meals


What are Universal Free School Meals?


The Government has announced that, from September 2014, they will provide funding to enable schools in England to offer a free lunch to every primary school child in reception classes, year 1 and year 2.


What does it mean to me?


This is fantastic news for parents with children within these year groups.  Parents could save nearly £400 per year per child and feel assured that their child is receiving a delicious, nutritious balanced meal which contributes to one third of a child’s daily nutritional requirement which aids concentration and helps with learning.


We can promise that your child will receive quality food, freshly prepared from scratch each day on site, cooked and served by catering professionals who care.


We hope that you will support this initiative and encourage your child / children to try a school meal and endorse this exciting plan.
