School Meals

All infant age children are currently entitled to free school lunches under the Government’s Universal Free School Meal’s initiative.

However, it is absolutely crucial that any parents who would qualify for benefits related to free school meals still register for this service as this significantly impacts funding for our school.

The office is always more than happy to check to see if you would qualify for benefits related to free school meals or parents can do it themselves here;
