Free School Meal and Pupil Premium Application

The government provides schools with additional funding to support or enhance the learning of pupils who are currently or have been entitled to free school meals within the last six years, or whose parents are in in the forces. It's essential that parents/carers apply for free school meals or inform the school if they are in the forces, even if the pupil does not wish to receive a free school meal.
