Free School Meals – If you think that your child may be entitled to free school meals please use the online application
An individual request must be made for each of your children.
However, we would kindly ask you to apply for Free School Meals (even if your child is in KS1) as the school will receive additional pupil premium funding should you be entitled if you are in receipt of one or more of the listed benefits:
Pupil Premium is a government funding initiative which aims to ensure that extra money goes to those children who could benefit from it the most. This includes children who have been entitled to free school meals and children who are, or have been at some stage, looked after by the local authority.
