Free Meals

Please register entitlement to Free School Meals through the School Office.  This helps the school and is done in confidence.  Further information regarding eligibility for Free school Meals may be found on our school website or details may be obtained from the school office.  Alternatively follow the link below to the Local Authority website to apply:


Even if your child is in Year R to Year 2, we ask that you register for this entitlement.  A large part of school funding depends on the number of children registered for free school meals.



Our school is part of the Fruit and  Vegetable Scheme.  All Early Years and KS1 children have a piece of fruit or vegetables each day.


Snack time takes place during play and school policy is that only fresh fruit or vegetable can be eaten at break time.  Children may bring water into school. Children in Early Years are also offered milk or water as part of their mid-session snack.
