School meals and packed lunches

Free School Meals
Free school meals are available for qualifying children up to the age of 18, as long as they are in full time education. If you think your child would qualify, please apply even if your child is receiving Universal Infant Free School Meals, as this also entitles schools to additional funding called Pupil Premium. Currently families can choose how some of this funding is spent. For advice on how to apply, or how pupil premium funding can be spent, please contact the school office.
