Free School Meals
Universal Infant Free School Meals
From September 2014 all children in Years R, 1 and 2 are entitled to free school meals. Good food has been shown to lead to healthier, happier and more fulfilled children and also to improved educational attainment.
Free School Meals and the Pupil Premium
Even if your child is in Year 3 and above, they may still be eligible to receive free school meals which could save you more than £350 a year. For every child registered our school will also receive £1,345 this year. The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families to do their very best - this funding is called 'Pupil Premium' and is allocated to schools for all children who successfully apply for free school meals.
