Free School Meals

14th September 2018

At this time of year it is important that all children that are entitled to Free School Meals are registered as such. This is different to Universal Free School Meals (all children in REC-Y2 receive Universal Free School Meals). Regardless of which year your child is in they may be entitled to Free School Meals.

What Free School Meals means to you? in addition to receiving a free lunch every day, school receive additional funding which is used to support your child. We can also use this funding to provide subsidised breakfast club / milk / swimming lessons / trips and music tuition.

If you are receipt of any of the following you should contact the NCC Free School Meals team directly on 01670 620444 and they will confirm if you are eligible.

  • Child tax credit ONLY
  • Income support
  • income related job seakers allowance

There are other criteria in addition to the above, so if you think you may be entitled please give them a call.

Please note that historically siblings have automatically been added to receive Free School Meals, this is no longer the case. Parents must apply for younger siblings as they reach school age. If you have any questions please call into the office.

Thank you

Mrs Hodgson
