Each year, we are allocated additional government funding so that free school meals can be provided for children who have been registered. This additional funding is also available to spend on resources, additional intervention and staff.  With this in mind, we would ask you to read the following information regarding eligibility for free school meals. If you and your child prefer to have a packed lunch from home and your child is entitled to receive free school meals, we would be grateful if you would complete the 'Free School Meals' available at the link below. If you need any support with the form please speak to Mrs Howles in the office.  Please sign up as it really helps our school to receive much needed additional funding.
