Am I eligible for Free School Meals?
Free School Meals are provided for pupils who's parents receive:
Why is it important to apply?
If you are eligible to receive free school meals it is very important to your child’s school that you apply. The school can access funding for children who qualify for free school meals that will allow them to provide targeted support programs, buy equipment and resources etc.
If your child prefers to take a packed lunch or make other arrangements it is still important to register for free school meals so the school can access funding.
How do I apply?
You must complete a Free School Meals form. Should you require any help please contact the school office.
Can my child bring in a packed lunch?
Of course. The children who bring in their own packed lunch will sit with their friends in the dinner hall. We ask that children bring in juice or water and not fizzy drinks. We help all children when needed with the opening of packaging as sometimes the wrappers can be quite tricky.
We ask, where possible that the packed lunch provided is balanced.
