Transitional provision

4.  A pupil receiving nursery education at a maintained school for whom school lunches are being provided immediately before 1 April 2003 must, until that pupil ceases to receive nursery education, be treated as if there were no prescribed requirements applying to that pupil under section 512(3)(a) of the 1996 Act.

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

Section 512(3) of the Education Act 1996, as amended by section 201 of the Education Act 2002 places a duty on Local Education Authorities to provide school lunches to pupils eligible for free school lunches and others, provided any prescribed requirements are met. This Order prescribes such a requirement.

The requirement is set out in article 3. It only applies to registered pupils receiving nursery education; they must be present for two full sessions on any day on which they attend school for there to be a duty to provide lunch on that day.

Article 4 contains a transitional provision, to prevent pupils receiving part-time nursery education at maintained schools for whom school lunches are already being provided immediately before 1 April 2003, from losing their entitlement to such lunches.

Article 5 revokes the Education (School Lunches) (Prescribed Requirement) (Wales) Order 2003.

(1)

1996 c. 56; section 512 is substituted by section 201 of the Education Act 2002 (c. 32). For the meaning of “prescribed”, see section 512(6).

(2)

See the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672) and section 211(1) and (2) of the Education Act 2002.
