Free School Meals


Free School Meals


If you are on benefits or a low income, your child may be eligible for free school meals. To find out if you are entitled to Free School Meals please use the following link


All children in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 automatically get free school meals through the Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme. Parents/carers do not need to make an application to receive these meals.   


If you receive benefits and your child already gets Universal Infant Free School Meals, you should still register for free school meals. This enables school to claim funding to support your child at school.  This is called Pupil Premium.             


Children in Year 3 or above, are only eligible for free school meals if their parents or carers are entitled to benefits, and they make an application for free school meals.


Children who receive free school meals in primary school will still get them when they move to secondary school.
