Free School Meals

From September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, will be able to receive a free school meal whether their parents are in receipt of benefits or not. If your child is in one of these year groups we still need you to apply for a free meal if you are receiving benefits.


Schools get extra funding for every child registered as eligible for a free school meal if their parents receive benefits. They use this money for activities including art therapy, booster classes, educational trips and after school clubs.
