A new programme of research and pilots to look at ways to tackle “holiday hunger” for pupils from disadvantaged families is set to be launched.
As reported by Tes, this comes after the government rejected a proposal to force councils to offer free meals during school holidays.
Education minister Nadhim Zahawi said that the research would look at how to best help disadvantaged pupils benefit from healthy meals outside of school.
The pilot programme is set to be confirmed later this year and the Department for Education said research would begin immediately. It will include a pilot programme in the summer of 2019.
