The Autumn Statement
We're delighted to bring you news from the Autumn Statement relating to Universal Free School Meals (UFSM).
Read the Department for Education's press release announcing the details of funding for UFSM along with the exciting news that £150 million of capital funding will be made available to ensure that schools can build news kitchens or increase dining capacity if necessary. A wonderful bit of government business to reflect with wonderful work of the School Food Plan!
