Free School Meals

Providing children with nutritious meals during the school day is vital for their health and wellbeing, and the council's new online system makes applying for Free School Meals quicker and easier than ever.

Through the government’s Free School Meals initiative, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive meals automatically. For children in other year groups, a parent/carer must apply. The council's new system simplifies the application process and speeds up the eligibility checks.

If you receive benefits and your child is in Reception or Years 1 or 2 please apply for Free School Meals through the council’s system. Our school will receive more funding – over £1,000 per pupil – which will be used for provision such as after school activities, summer clubs and extra help with reading.
