Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM)

All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 get 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.

Since September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England have been eligible for a filling nutritious cooked school lunch at no cost to the parent.

This includes infant pupils in maintained infant and primary schools, free schools, academies, and schools for pupils with special educational needs and pupil referral units. No proof of eligibility is required, it just needs a child to be in once of the relevant three years and their school will arrange for them to have lunch at no cost to the parent.

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