Free school meals

Help maximise your school's income

All children in Reception class and Years 1 and 2 are eligible for a free school meal, but schools receive extra funding called the pupil premium for children from families who receive a qualifying benefit for free school meals.

If you have a child joining Reception class or in Year 1 or Year 2 and you get a qualifying benefit for free school meals, please contact us on 0300 300 8306. The information you provide will only be used to increase the school’s income, and will remain confidential.
