Free School Meals Training - New dates now available!

We have three training opportunities coming up this academic year to attend the Free School Meals training.

This course is ideal for school office staff or anyone involved in the administration or monitoring of free school meals. The content is also suitable for learning mentors, business managers, inclusion staff, family support workers, pastoral team and food and healthy coordinators.

Find out about important changes to the free school meals application process, Universal Credit, transitional protection and how to maximise your FSM supplementary grant. Free school meals can help to reduce food poverty and remove hunger as a barrier to learning in education. This course will be delivered in partnership with Leeds Benefit Service.

Delegates will learn key information about free school meals, eligibility criteria, pupil premium, sign posting and much more.

Through practical activities and discussion, delegates will explore barriers and solutions for supporting pupils and families to take their free school meal entitlement. The course will help schools to eliminate stigma and help more children and young people in Leeds to receive a healthy and nutritious meal in school.
