unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is responsible for the introduction of the requirement that state-funded schools in England should offer universal infant free school meals, which came into effect on 1 September 2014.</p><p> </p><p>Between 2009 and 2011 the Department for Education and the Department of Health piloted the provision of universal free school meals in Durham and Newham. The independent evaluation of those pilots showed that there were a number of benefits arising from the provision of universal free school meals, including improved attainment, healthier eating habits and increases in the uptake of meals among children who would have been eligible for free school meals under the existing criteria. We also know, from research carried out by the School Food Trust (now Children’s Food Trust), that universal infant free school meals will save families who previously paid for school lunches up to £400 a year per infant child.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has used School Food Trust research into the costs of school meal provision, as well as feedback from local authorities and stakeholders, to inform the allocation of funding for this policy and the targeting of implementation support. In particular, this research informed the decision to allocate £2.30 of revenue funding per meal taken by newly eligible pupils.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The post-16 transport guidance for local authorities was reviewed following the introduction of legislation to raise the participation age in 2013 and an updated version was published in February this year.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The statutory responsibility for transport to education and training for 16- to 19-year-olds continues to rest with local authorities, enabling them to make decisions which best match local needs and circumstances. Local authorities are expected to make reasonable decisions based on the needs of their population, the local transport infrastructure, and the resources they have available. The Government has no plans at present to extend the statutory requirement beyond this.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Most 16- to 19-year-olds have access to a discount or concession on local travel, from their local transport provider, their local authority, or from their education or training provider. The £180 million Bursary Fund is also available to support young people with the costs associated with attending education or training, and transport is the biggest single area of expenditure for which this fund is used.</p><p> </p>
