Free school meals for all reception aged children

From September 2014 all children in reception classes Y1 and Y2 are entitled to a free school lunch. Let the school know if your child will be having a school lunch.

This is a government initiative, launched as a result of the school food plan and means you could save up to £360 a year per child.

If you are on a low income or receive certain benefits your child could receive free school meals after reception years.
