We are updating our Free School Meals register and need to have current information for any family eligible for free meals (even if your child/ren have packed lunch or receive a free meal under the Government’s Universal Free Meals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils).
Please ask the office to send you an application form, regardless of whether you have completed one in the past, if you are eligible. If you are unsure, please request the form and we will check for you.
