Currently all pupils in Reception (F2) , Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to free school meals. These are called Universal Infant Free Meals.
All other Year groups currently pay for their school meal.
Did you know that if you receive certain benefits you may be entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) and milk? You can still register for FSM even if your child is in F2, Year 1 and Year 2 – this will bring additional funding to school to help support your child.
It is important that all parents who receive one of the benefits listed on the link below register for Free School Meals as this will enable your child’s school to claim pupil premium allocation. The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment. This additional funding for schools can help to buy new equipment and resources.
In the 2016-2017 financial year schools received £1,320 for each eligible primary-aged pupil. Please see the following link to find out more.
