All children in Reception and Years 1 & 2 are entitled to free school lunches. However if you meet the eligibility criteria for free school meals, the school will receive an extra sum of money which is targetted directly at them.

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400.
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
