Call for permanent extension of free school meals for disadvantaged migrant children


Leaders of children’s charities, unions and rights groups have written to Education Secretary Gavin Williamson calling on him to permanently extend free school meals to pupils from low-income migrant families with no recourse to public funds.

The letter calls for all children in families who are classified as having no recourse to public funds to be able to receive free school meals permanently. Picture: Lucie Carlier
