star this property answer text <p>We are working very closely with other departments, including the Cabinet Office and the Department for Work and Pensions, to simplify free school meals criteria under universal credit, while ensuring that free lunches continue to be available to the families who need them most. These discussions, which include consideration of a phased implementation timetable, are in recognition of the significant number and complexity of passported benefits across Government, most of which have different eligibility criteria.</p><p>We will allow good time to enable schools, local authorities and children's charities to comment on our proposals before we introduce new entitlement criteria for free school meals under universal credit.</p><p> </p> more like this

For financial years 2009 to 2011 this covers funding through the dedicated schools grant, school standards grant, school standards grant (personalisation) and standards fund; it excludes grants which are not allocated at local authority level.<br /><br />2. Figures have been rounded to the nearest £10.<br /><br />3. In financial year 2011 to 2012, most separate grants were mainstreamed in to the DSG.

The schools block per pupil unit of funding (SBUF), which does not cover funding for early years or high needs, was £4,310 for Staffordshire and £5,066 for Brent. The early years block per pupil units of funding in 2013-14 were £3,515 for Staffordshire and £5,930 for Brent. In 2013-14, high needs funding was no longer allocated on a per-pupil basis. However total high needs block funding for the year was £57.483 million for Staffordshire and £53.7 million for Brent.</p><p>In addition, since financial year 2011-12 schools have received pupil premium per qualifying pupil, which targets funding at pupils from the most deprived backgrounds to help them achieve their full potential. In 2012-13, coverage was expanded to include pupils known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. The amounts per pupil for each type of pupil are shown in following table in cash terms:</p><p><br /><br /></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Pupil premium per pupil (£)</p></td><td><p>2011-2012</p></td><td><p>2012-2013</p></td><td><p>2013-2014</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Free school meal secondary pupils and looked-after children</p></td><td><p>488</p></td><td><p>623</p></td><td><p>900</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Free school meal primary pupil</p></td><td><p>488</p></td><td><p>623</p></td><td><p>953</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Service children</p></td><td><p>200</p></td><td><p>250</p></td><td><p>300</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>
