Free School Meals

If your child is eligible for free school meals, it is important that you make an application even if your child is not going to have the school lunch. This is because schools receive a ‘Pupil Premium’ – an extra payment for each eligible child which they can spend on useful services.

DOES YOUR CHILD QUALIFY?

If your child is attending school full time they will qualify if you receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit with no Working Tax Credit and have an income, as assessed by the Inland Revenue, that does not exceed £16,190
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
  • Employment Support Allowance (Income Related) (ESA-IR)

Even if your child is in Foundation or KS1 and receiving a free school meal, please ensure that if eligible you apply for a free school meal as brings in extra payment to the school and would ensure that your child is entitled to free school milk.

Magic Breakfast

We are proud to be a National School Breakfast Programme school.

We are happy to offer a healthy breakfast to all  our children and we would welcome your child to join us for a great start to the day.

We offer healthy, tasty bagels to all children during registration time.

School Milk

All children under 5 are entitled to a free carton of milk on each school day. The free milk will stop at the end of the term in which your child turns 5 years old.

All children entitled to free school meals are also entitled to carton for milk for free each school day.

A letter has been sent out to all parents offering them the opportunity to purchase milk for the children who are not entitled to free school milk and asking the parents of children entitled to free school meals to let the school office know if their child would like to take up the offer of free milk.
