Free School Meals & Pupil Premium

If your family receives certain benefits or is on a low income, your child could be eligible for a free school meal. It costs nothing to check & apply but could save you money.

Please check if your child is eligible for ‘Free School Meals / Pupil Premium on this Service’  It is a web site where parents can quickly & easily check eligibility for free school meals &, if eligible, also gain welcome additional funding for their child’s school, known as ‘Pupil Premium’.

If eligible, you are not obliged to accept the free school meals for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding gained would still benefit education provision at the school.

For more information please visit  or apply here

Please note a Free School Meal allowance is for food only up to the value of £2.70, this allows for a balanced lunch & dessert. Please supply your child with a drink each day & extra snacks if wanted.

On the days that our school is due to close early for a half day, your child can collect their Free School Meal allowance during morning break time.
