All children in Year R and Key Stage 1 pupils are able to have a school meal at lunchtime, free of charge.
This applies to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, and requires no registration. Each child is entitled to a hot, two course meal at their school which will include a meat, non-meat or jacket potato main item, vegetables/salad, pasta/rice/potato, and a dessert.
Parents who meet the standard free meal criteria, are encouraged to register, even if their children are in Key Stage 1 as eligibility provides additional funding for schools in the form of Pupil Premium, further helping to support children.
Parents should contact their school initially with queries about Universal Infant Free Schools Meals, but can also contact HC3S on 023 8062 9388 or by email to email@example.com if further clarification is required.
