Many of our families could get Free School Meals but do not claim for them; your child may be entitled to Free School Meals if you as the parent are in receipt of any of the following benefits:
Save hundreds of pounds per year
Extra funding for the school in the form of Pupil Premium
It’s your entitlement
Other pupils and parents will not know you are claiming
At Eastfield Primary School children in our reception class, year one and year two receive a free school lunch if they wish, and it has not been necessary for any parents to fill in a Free School Meals application form.
We are able to claim extra money from the government which we use to help us provide a range of extra trips for children, and this money is linked to parents applying for Free School Meals in the past. In order to continue claiming this money from the government, we need parents to re-register for Free School Meals.
So, if you receive a benefit that gives entitlement to Free School meals (as detailed above) please pop in to school reception where they can provide a form and you help fill it out.
