This consultation document explains:
- the general principles applied in considering changes to the criteria for free school meals and the early years pupil premium under Universal Credit - our intention is that these entitlements reach the most disadvantaged households, in a way that is consistent, fair and simple
- the measures we plan to take to protect those families who would otherwise lose entitlement to free school meals as a result of this criteria change
- our plans for communicating these changes to parents, providers and local authorities
