Free School Meal Auto- Enrolment Interview

Fix our Food: Free School Meal Auto-Enrolment

Your child’s school Stocksbridge High School is part of a network of schools that have been involved in a new programme in which those who are entitled to Free School Meals are automatically enrolled to receive them. This means that parents no longer need to apply, but rather, now receive a letter home giving them the option to opt-out of receiving a free school meal for their child if they wish.

The Fix Our Food team, at the University of York, have been working closely with your council to explore how effective this free school meal auto-enrolment programme has been. FixOurFood is a project with the vision of transforming food in schools across all of Yorkshire and beyond. At Fix our Food, our aim is that tasty, good quality, sustainable food is eaten by all children in schools and early years settings.

You have been invited to take part in an interview to tell us what you think about the free school meal auto-enrolment programme.
