Free school meals are available to all pupils in maintained schools, academies and free schools.
If your child is eligible to receive a free school meal at any time before March 2022, they will retain their eligibility until this date. If your child is still in education in March 2022, they will retain their eligibility until the end of their current phase of education.
Pupil Premium – Extra Funding
We receive extra funding for every child recorded as being eligible for a free school meal. We receive £935 per year for Year 7 to 11 pupils. Your child does not need to take the meal if you would prefer them not to, but by being registered, the school will receive the extra funding.
