Last week Nick Clegg’s ‘Free School Meals’ policy for children aged 5-7 was launched across the UK.
I believe it to be an ill considered policy for many reasons but mainly because I think that the money should be spent on those who need it and not those who don’t.
My thoughts are irrelevant as it’s happening but how well it will work is another matter. So far not so good in many schools. Headteachers have had to buy in take aways or provided packed lunches as meal providers have let them down or kitchen facilities aren't ready.
