|In April 2018 the criteria used to determine which pupils are eligible for free school meals was updated to reflect the introduction of Universal Credit and the phasing out of other income-based benefits.
Under the updated criteria, an estimated 50,000 more pupils will benefit from a free school meal compared to the previous benefits system.
