All children in Foundation class, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a Free School Meal, regardless of their parents’ income, however you may still need to apply. (Please see list below regarding eligibility).
If you are in receipt of any of the benefits shown below it is important that you also claim Free School Meals as this will open up different opportunities for your child and the school as your child will qualify for Pupil Premium. The Pupil Premium grant is allocated to schools as additional funding to raise attainment for children who qualify for the Pupil Premium. Even if you do not intend claiming your meals, the school receives significant extra funding to support our work.
