Applying for Free School Meals
All pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals. If you are eligible for particular state benefits then your child will get free school meals throughout their school career. Please register for them even though you are getting free meals during the first three years of school under the Free School Meals scheme because it directly affects the Pupil Premium Grant which the school receives. This grant helps to support socially disadvantaged children in the school community.
