Free school meals for infant-aged children in Lincolnshire
Infant aged school children will receive free school meals from September 2014.
Announcing the scheme at the Liberal Democrat conference in Glasgow, the deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said parents will save around £437 a year for each child.
Russell Hobby, general secretary of National Association of Head Teachers, said: “We welcome this announcement and we are sure it will benefit pupils, parents and schools. School leaders and teachers know the benefits to children’s learning and development which come from good nutrition and schemes such as this are good investments for the future.
“An initiative such as this will also help remove the stigma surrounding free school meals and this will help not only some of the poorest families in society but also parents struggling to provide decent lunches.

“However, it is essential schools have the capacity, kitchen facilities and staff to provide healthy and nutritious meals to all pupils on a daily basis. We hope schools will be given the help and support they need to deliver such an ambitious and well-meaning project within a relatively tight timeframe, particularly at schools which may need adaptations and equipment to accommodate a meal service. Nevertheless, free school meals for all infant-age children is a bold idea and if properly rolled out we are sure it will be of enormous benefit to schools, parents and pupils.”
