Provision of Milk, Meals, etc.

36Provision of milk and meals at schools and other educational establishments under the management of education authorities

(1)It shall be the duty of an education authority to provide milk and a midday meal, and it shall be lawful for them to provide other meals and refreshments, for pupils in attendance at public schools and junior colleges under their management on days when the schools meet or when the pupils are required, by attendance notices to be present at a junior college, as the case may be, and they may make similar provision for the said pupils on other days, for children who have attained the age of five pending their admission to school, and for pupils in attendance at other educational establishments under their management.

(2)Where in the opinion of an education authority any pupil attending a public school in their area would otherwise be unable to take full advantage of the education provided, they shall make such arrangements for such period as they deem necessary for the provision to the pupil of milk and mid-day meals on days when the school does not meet.

(3)The Secretary of State may make regulations as to the manner in which and the persons by whom the expense of providing such milk, meals and other refreshment is to be defrayed, as to the facilities to be afforded (including any buildings or other equipment" to be provided) and as to such other consequential matters as he considers expedient.

(4)For the purposes of this section, a pupil for whom an education authority have made special arrangements under section eight of this Act may, at the discretion of the education authority, be deemed to be in attendance at a public school under their management.

37Provision of ancillary services for pupils hot in attendance at public schools

An education authority may, with the consent of the managers of any school in their area which is not a public school, and upon such financial and other terms, if any, as may be determined by agreement between the authority and the managers, make arrangements for securing—

(a)the provision of milk, meals and other refreshment for pupils in attendance at the school; and

(b)the provision, for any pupil in attendance at the school who is unable by reason of the inadequacy or unsuitability of his clothing to take full advantage of the education (including physical exercise) provided by the school, of such clothing as is necessary for the purpose of ensuring that he is sufficiently and suitably clad while he remains a pupil at the school:

Provided that any arrangements made under this section shall be such as to secure, so far as is practicable, that the expense incurred by the authority in connection with the provision of any service or article shall not exceed the expense which would have been incurred by them if the pupils had been pupils at a public school.
