Free School Meals Eligibility (reviewed October 2022)
All children in Reception, Year One and Year Two are entitled to Universal Free School Meals.
For children in Year Three onwards, free school meals are still available to some children based on specific criteria for eligibility.
Your child may be able to receive additional free school meals support if parent(s)/guardian(s) are currently in receipt of any of the following support payments:
Please make sure that you complete the Free School Meals Eligibility form as part of the School Admission Pack for your child, even if you feel that you may not currently be eligible for free school meals.
Once the form is completed, the school is able to check and confirm your current eligibility status and will also be notified if your circumstances change in the future.
The school may also receive some additional funding to help to support your child which would not be available without eligibility checking being undertaken.
