Do you know that with the introduction of Universal Infant FSM the number of lunches taken on census days will have a huge impact on your school budget!
Every child newly entitled under Universal Infant FSM is worth £437. It is important that you ensure that at least this calculated number of pupils is entered in your census returns 2nd October 2014 and 15th January 2015 to avoid a shortfall in funding.
Also consider that if on other meal days you equal or exceed this number you will have to fund those meals from elsewhere.
IT MAKES SENSE THAT EVERY POSSIBLE INFANT CHILD WHO QUALIFIES FOR UNIVERSAL INFANT FSM MUST TAKE MEALS ON CENSUS DAYS
