Teachers' opinions of free school meals

As part of our Fair and Square campaign, we surveyed over 500 teachers to explore their views on free school meals. 

The results of the survey were addressed in our Food for Thought report (press release, full text). Among the survey's results, we found that significant percentages of teachers are concerned about children coming to school hungry.

We recently spoke to Bob Ellis, head teacher of Conisborough College, who outlines what he does at his London-area school and why he supports our campaign.

As he rightly points out, children are not going to be able to achieve their full potential if they are going hungry and if their parents are struggling financially. Therefore, it is imperative that the government ensures all children in poverty, including those in working families, can get free school meals.

If you believe that all children in poverty deserve to receive free school meals, join our Fair and Square campaign.

'We fully support this campaign'

Can I just say what a relief to uncover an individual who really knows what they're
discussing on the net. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More and more people need to look at this and understand this side
of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular since you certainly possess the gift.
