unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education has previously confirmed that it would be allocating £150 million in the 2014-15 financial year to support the implementation of the universal infant free school meals (UIFSM) policy. Local authorities (LAs) are also free to use their budgets for improvement and maintenance to support this objective. We allocated £1.4 billion to schools, LAs and the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund for maintenance and improvement in 2014-15.</p><p>On 6 March we launched a package of implementation support measures to help schools to provide meals to eligible pupils. This includes a national UIFSM support service, run by school food experts, which will offer advice and guidance to schools that need assistance in implementing UIFSM. The support will include a telephone helpline, the sharing of good practice, and intensive face-to-face support</p><p>The Department also announced on 6 March that it would be providing transitional funding to small schools with eligible pupils, worth a minimum of £3,000, which qualifying schools will be able to use to help them overcome delivery challenges.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We are currently working with 221 schools in the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP). We will have commenced work with all schools by the end of 2014. Before building work can begin, plans must be drawn up, contracts negotiated and planning permission secured. Construction work has already started at 24 schools (20 under main works contracts and four under early works agreements). We expect that building work will have commenced at all schools by the end of 2016. All schools will be delivered by the end of 2017, two years earlier than originally planned.</p><p>Under Building Schools for the Future (BSF), it took three years from first planning for building works to begin. We have cut this to one year under the PSBP. Had we continued with BSF timescales, no PSBP schools would yet have started construction. The first school being rebuilt under the PSBP will open in May 2014.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government announced in September 2013 that state-funded schools will be required to offer free school meals to infant pupils from September 2014, giving schools a full year to put arrangements in place. We know from the universal free school meal pilots, in which schools were required to provide meals to all infant pupils and all key stage 2 pupils, that it is possible for schools to prepare to implement this policy with much less notice.</p><p>In order to help schools to implement universal infant free school meals in September 2014 we have put in place a national support service, run by school food experts. The assistance available through that service includes a telephone helpline, the sharing of good practice, and intensive face-to-face support. We are also providing additional funding of £22.5 million to help small schools with the transition to providing meals for all their infant pupils.</p> more like this
