Free school meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 automatically get free school meals.  From Year 3 onwards, children whose parents are in receipt of any of the benefits below are entitled to free school meals.

All parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school as this can help their child’s school to attract additional ‘pupil premium’ funding to support learning.  Please ensure that you register as this attracts additional money to our school which can have a great impact on the children’s learning. You may also qualify for help with costs towards school trips etc. If you do not register, we do not get the extra funding in school.

If you receive any of the following benefits, please register and apply via the Cornwall County Council Free School Meals website which will result in a quicker decision.  If your application is successful, please bring proof to the school office such as a screenshot or print out of the result. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
