We are wishing to let you know that the cost of a school meal will increase to £2.34 with effect from the 1st September 2020 for all Junior children who are not entitled to Free School Meals. The Government are continuing to fund school meals for our Infant children, so there will be no charge to parents for meals for children in our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes.
We would like to ask all families to consider whether you are eligible for Free School Meals because if you are, not only will your child receive a Free School Meal, the school will also receive additional funding which will help support our children through their education.
If you are in receipt of one or more of the qualifying benefits listed below and you are not in receipt of Working Tax Credits, please complete an application - you can apply online using this link:
