The introduction of Universal Infant Free school Meals has been a great success and allowed all children to receive a free hot meal each day until the end of Year 2. However, the school believes that one negative impact of this is that some parents/carers do not realise that there is a difference between Free School Meals eligibility and Universal Infant Free School Meals eligibility and numbers of pupils eligible is falling, particularly in the younger school years.
For every Free School Meals eligible child identified, school receives an annual sum of money to assist with providing focused intervention and support to small groups which includes the children eligible for Free School Meals. This funding has been put to excellent use in raising the levels of achievement for children eligible for Free School Meals. Naturally children in Year 3 and older will also receive a free hot meal during their time at school.
Even if you do not believe that you are currently eligible, we would ask that you complete the form for each child in school and this will mean that should your circumstances change, and you become eligible, no further action will be required for your child to receive a free school meal and prevents the accrual of meal charges prior to the eligibility being confirmed by other means.
