What are Universal Infant Free School Meals?

All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in state-funded schools in England are eligible for a Universal Infant Free School Meal. Parents / Guardians do not need to apply for UIFSM.

Pupils moving into KS2 will lose their entitlement to UIFSM.  If they wish to continue receiving a School Meal they will either have to pay or claim Free School Meals.
