Free School Meals

Please don’t forget, the Mayor of London has arranged for every primary school child in Greater London to have  a free school meal this year. There is nothing you need to do to claim the meal, your child will automatically be given one if they want it.

It is really important that all parents and carers still apply for income and benefits related free school meals, if they are entitled to them. This not only ensures continuity, as the Mayor’s funding finishes at the end of this school year, but also benefits the school, as the number of children claiming free school meals is used by the government when determining  school budgets. So we advise all parents to check if they are eligible. It is very easy to check. Just go to:

Or come and talk to us in the school office, and we will be happy to help.
