Therefore the default position of FM in respect of school meals charging is as follows:
• Children who would normally pay for a school meal will be charged for a school meal taken during the new lockdown.
• Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM & UIFSM) will not be charged for a school meal taken during the new lockdown.
• Adult meals will be chargeable to the individual unless school has specifically indicated that they will pay for adult meals.
Some individual schools may require different charging arrangements, i.e. schools may choose to fund all meals during the lockdown. If this is the case, please contact your designated Business Relationship Manager or Service Delivery Manager.
