Free School Meals
All children in Foundation / KS1 (Acorns 1, 2 & 3) are entitled to universal free school meals.
Families with low income / on benefits may also be entitled to free school meals for their child. Please contact the School Food Support Service on 0116 305 6588 to confirm eligibility.
Even if your child is entitled to a universal free school meal, it is still important to confirm eligibility for free school meals as this will enable the school to obtain further government funding to provide additional support to your child (referred to as Pupil Premium Funding).
