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:
At Eastfield Primary School all children in our reception class, year one and year two receive a free school lunch if they wish, and it is not necessary for any parents to fill in a Free School Meals application form.
However, we are able to claim extra money from the government which we use to help us provide further support for our children, and this money is linked to parents applying for Free School Meals. 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.
