If you receive certain benefits, you may be able to receive a free, nutritious meal for your children during term time.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will automatically qualify for a Universal Infant Free School Meal, however we would urge everyone eligible to submit an application to obtain Full entitlement to Free School Meals, regardless of their child's age. We would encourage you to apply to register you entitlement - even if you intend to provide a packed lunch. We will keep a note of your entitlement and only order a meal when you request it.
If your Free School Meals (FSM) application is approved, the school will receive additional funding from the government (Pupil Premium Funding - currently worth over £1000 per eligible child). We will use this funding to enrich the school curriculum. In addition, we may be able to offer additional benefits when needed, such as assistance with trip/instrument tuition costs and occasional grants/benefits offered by external providers e.g. school uniform grant, holiday play scheme discounts, holiday food vouchers, etc whenever these become available. These additional benefits will be first offered to those with Full FSM eligibility.
