Free School Meal Vouchers

UPDATE - Wednesday 20th May 2020

Families who have been receiving Free School Meals vouchers will NOT receive them during the upcoming two week school holiday. This is in line with normal school practice for meal provision in holiday times and is the same as happened during the Easter Holidays.


If your child is in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 6 and you choose to send your child back to school on Monday 8th June and they have a free school dinner then your free school meal vouchers will stop. 


Should you have any queries about this, please contact school.
