Free School Meals Entitlement

From September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Free School Meal under the governments Universal Free School Meals scheme. For children in Years 3 – 6, meals are priced at £1.80 per day and for children in Nursery, meals are priced at £1.80 per day.

However, it’s important that parents/carers still complete an online application form in order to get the additional benefits that come with free school meals. This includes the school providing your child with two school jumpers and two polo shirts each year.

If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, applications can be made online using the following link: If you have any queries, please contact the school office team who will be happy to help you complete your application.
