News From Westminster-By Michelle Donelan MP- Free school meals

A number of constituents have recently got in touch about free school meals. By 2022 around 50,000 more children will benefit from a free school meal – despite scaremongering to the contrary.

The suggestion that one million children will lose free school meals is misinformed. This figure is based on a hypothetical situation where all children in receipt of Universal Credit receive them, which was never promised or the intention because it would mean around 50% of all pupils would be eligible. This money would have to come from somewhere and would mean taking it from another part of education spending. Instead, we have made sure that free school meals remain targeted at the children who need them most.

We have also put in place transitional protections so that nobody currently receiving free school meals will lose their entitlement when moving onto Universal Credit. This guarantees that no-one will lose out, which is why I am concerned that some people have been unnecessarily worried by the scaremongering.

Recent research by the Children’s Society shows that only 65% of those currently eligible for free school meals actually receive one, this is due to the stigma felt by parents, difficulty meeting dietary requirements and preference for packed lunches. I believe that we need to make sure that the current system is helping those in most need.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and studies show that regularly skipping it can damage a child’s educational attainment. I have campaigned for the introduction of free breakfasts in all schools. In Parliament I welcomed the Government’s announcement of a £26million fund to support breakfast clubs. I highlighted to the Education Secretary of State that although Wiltshire is not a deprived county, it has pockets of deprivation with some schools in my constituency having two-thirds of pupils on pupil premium. I asked for clarification on how the deprivation areas will be determined and he explained that they will use the ‘income deprivation affecting children index’ methodology and said that he would write to me about what the implications are for Chippenham.

I have a number of appointment-based and pop-in surgeries coming up. If you have an issue, concern or problem please get in touch michelle.donelan.mp@parliament.uk, 01249 704465 or pop into my office 61 New Road, Chippenham.

    Hi there. I was just wondering why its such a big thing these days to have a ridiculous amount of ram in a computer? People tell me that the more Ram you have in your computer the faster your computer will be. I always thought that it was the processor that controls the speed of a computer and not the Ram.. . I had 512MB of Ram in my laptop and I have now changed it to 2Gigs of Ram and I’ve seen no difference in performance what so ever. . Could somebody please explain to me what does Ram does exactly?. Thanks in advance.

  5. I am working on an educational website and the owners wanted an article section where I put articles they indicate on the site. The articles come from news/magazine and other online article/new sources. I have been listing ?Article Taken From: (URL)? and a link to the original article. I thought that was enough, but I have heard from a friend that it isn?t. . This site is NOT yet publicly online, so I can change things to be legal before it becomes a legal problem.. . What do I need as a citation to make sure I don?t infringe on anyone?s copyright?. Do I need to do anything else other than listing a citation & link to be legal?. . Thank You all for helping!. SRGR.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
