Benefits-Related Free School Meals

As you know, all primary school children in London can have a free school lunch, this academic year. We really hope that you will take up this opportunity to save yourself some money, if you haven’t already done so.

If you are concerned that your child won’t eat from the school menu please don’t hesitate to come and talk to Michelle, our school cook. She is on the gate most mornings and is always more than happy to talk through the menu with you. Do remember that we can cater for allergies and differing dietary requirements.

Some of you will also have received vouchers during the holidays. There are more to come at half term and then again at Easter, but in order to claim these you need to have registered your child for benefit-related free school meals. This is really easy to do. Just follow this link: and answer a few, very simple questions. Once we have been notified, the school will then issue you with holiday time vouchers. Every child registered on this site also brings in more money to the school, which is spent on employing teaching assistants and buying resources to support our children. We are most grateful to those of you who have done this. If you think that you might be eligible please follow the link.
