Free School Meals
If you feel your child may be entitled to a Free School Meal, please read the following information about eligibility.
It is very important that you claim these meals, even if your child does not want a cooked meal. This is because, once you are registered as being entitled to a free school meal for your child, he/she will receive extra funding throughout their time in Primary School. This will enable our School to buy in extra resources and support for your child.
