Signing up is easy!!

To sign up your child for a free school meal, and to ensure that our school receives government funding for this initiative, we  need some information about you and your child.  Please complete this form and return to your child’s school by the start of the school term.

Registering could raise money for our school

It’s important to sign up for free school meals as registering could also raise an extra £900 for your child’s school from central government, to fund valuable support like extra tuition, learning assistants or after school clubs.


Even if you don’t want your child to receive a free meal, we would encourage you to register for free school meals so that their school receives as much funding as possible!
