School Meals Funding
Under the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals funding, all children in EYFS, Yr 1 and Yr 2 are entitled to a freshly cooked school meal prepared in our own kitchen.
It’s important that parents and guardians eligible for Pupil Premium for their child or children (as outlined below) continue to apply for this as they continue through school to allow us to order free school meals and allocate other funding as appropriate.
Please refer to this leaflet for information about eligibiity for free school meals.
