Free School meals are provided when parents/carers meet certain eligibility criteria. We will ensure that each child who is eligible for free school meals receive a meal which is filling and nutritionally balanced. Research has shown that productivity and attainment can be improved when children eat balanced meals.
If a child is in Reception, or Years 1 and 2, they automatically qualify for Free School Meals under the universal scheme. However, if you meet the qualifying criteria for Free School Meals, this could raise extra funding for your child’s school. It is therefore important to complete the application form to ensure the school receives as much funding as possible.
