FREE SCHOOL MEALS
You may be entitled to claim FREE SCHOOL MEALS for your child. This will apply if you are receiving any of the following benefits:
If you are entitled to claim FREE SCHOOL MEALS, it is very important that you do so, even if you do not wish your child to have a school meal or your child is entitled to a universal free school meal. This is because the school receives funding for every child who is entitled to Free School Meals. This funding makes a huge difference to our school.
To claim FREE SCHOOL MEALS, parents need to complete and return the application form to
The Revenue and Benefits Unit
UNIVERSAL FREE SCHOOL MEALS
All children in reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a FREE SCHOOL MEAL every day. This is a government-funded initiative introduced in September 2014. Even if your child is entitled to a free school meal because they are in reception, Year 1 and Year 2, it is still important that you claim your entitlement for free school meals if you qualify. This is because the school receives additional funding for every child who is entitled to a free school meals because of their family’s financial circumstances.
