Universal Infant Free School Meals

With effect from 1 September 2014, all Key Stage 1 pupils are able to have a school meal at lunchtime, free of charge.


This applies to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and requires no registration. Each child is entitled to a hot, two course meal at their school which will include a meat or non-meat main item, vegetables, potato, pasta or rice, salad and a dessert.


The government made the commitment to fund all these meals earlier in 2014 and funding has been allocated to schools. Hampshire County Council is therefore encouraging all Key Stage 1 pupils to enjoy a school meal at lunchtime.


Parents who meet the standard free meal criteria, are encouraged to register, even if their children are in Key Stage 1 as eligibility provides additional funding for schools in the form of Pupil Premium, further helping to support children.
