Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive a healthy nutritious lunch at no cost to you. Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) is a government initiative aimed at improving academic attainment for infant children and to help families save money.

Each child gets a healthy nutritious cooked lunch which includes a main course and pudding, water is always available in the school dining room.

You will be given the school menu which shows the meals that are being prepared on a three week rotation. The menus always reflect the seasons with different vegetables and fruit on offer. All our schools aim to cater for those on special diets because of medical, cultural or religious reasons.

Good food provision in schools has been shown to lead not only to healthier children, but to improved attainment. The plan was brought in to help create a generation of children who enjoy food that makes them healthier, more successful and most importantly happier.

What are the benefits of this scheme?

Better health – a cooked school lunch gives the children  essential vitamins and minerals they need to help them grow, develop, fight infection and have the energy to lead a happy and healthy life.

Better achievement and behaviour

There’s a link between what children eat at lunchtime in school, where they eat it and how they focus with their teachers in the afternoon. It teaches them to sit down together, which develops their social skills and encourages them to try new foods.
