Statement on free school meals

Developments on free school meals in England and Scotland

Commenting on the latest developments on free school meals over the Summer, Voice General Secretary Deborah Lawson said:

"Voice welcomes the decisions in England and in Scotland to fund free school meals over the summer holidays.

"Our members always put the needs of the pupils first, and we are pleased that the governments in England and Scotland are also doing so in this instance.

"We hope that the necessary guidance and support to allow the initiative in England to be a success will be published shortly to ensure that schools have sufficient time to prepare to implement it, and ensure that children do not go hungry over the summer holidays."
