Free School Meals
In all English primary schools, children in reception class, year one and year two receive a free school lunch if they wish, and it has not been necessary for any parents to fill in a Free School Meals application form.
School’s are able to claim extra money from the government which we use to help us provide a range of extra activities for eligible children, and this money is linked to parents applying for Free School Meals in the past. In order to continue claiming this money from the government, we need parents to re-register for Free School Meals.
So, if you receive a benefit that gives entitlement to Free School meals (as detailed below) please pop in to school reception where they can provide a form and help you fill it out.
