Free School Meals
 

Did you know?

  •          Families who are currently paying for school meals will save around £450 a year for each primary school child if they are entitled to free school meals.
  •          We have systems which mean it is impossible for other pupils to know who is receiving free school meals.
  •          School children who are eligible for free school meals are entitled to a two course meal worth approximately £2.30 for primary and £2.35 for secondary each day. 
  •          When you apply for free school meals, you will also allow your child's school to receive Pupil Premium, which is extra money to support children from families on lower incomes.
  •          If your child is in receipt of universal infant free school meals (where your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2), we recommend you apply if you believe you may be eligible for free school meals, because the protection will continue beyond Year 2.
  •          Secondary school children who are entitled to free school meals might also qualify for help with school transport costs.
  •          If you also have a 3 or 4 year old child who is in a free childcare place, they may also be eligible for Early Years Pupil Premium.

  •          Income Support
