Universal Free School Meals

Reception (Foundation Stage 2) /Year 1 / Year 2 Pupils

From September 2014 the Government announced all pupils in Foundation Stage 2 - Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meals at lunchtime. 

This offer does not depend on your household income or whether you receive any benefits – every child in these classes is eligible to take up the offer.

The government has decided to fund free school lunches for all pupils in this age group, following the Department for Education’s review of school food. 

In a trial, it was found that pupils who ate a high quality school lunch achieved better academically than those who did not.
