Universal Free School Meals
All pupils currently in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 are able to receive a school meal at no cost to parent/carers. Choosing a universal free school meal will help save you up to £450 per year, encourage positive eating habits and helps to improve concentration and performance in the classroom. A school lunch will also provide a varied and balanced diet and provide the right amount of energy to ensure that your child can work better in the afternoons.
Meals are available to be purchased for children in Key Stage 2. If you think your child might be entitled to free school meals, please see the information on the Lincolnshire County Council's website: https://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-pupil-support/apply-free-school-meals
Applications should be made online at https://lcc.cloud.servelec-synergy.com/parentportal
If you are eligible, we will be notified. Your child will receive free school meals and the school will receive a Pupil Premium - extra funding to support your child's education. Children in receipt of free school meals also qualify for a reduction in costs for educational visits and other chargeable events, so it is always worth enquiring.
If you are not eligible at this time and to avoid requesting this information again, Lincolnshire County Council will store your data securely and it will be checked for eligibility should your circumstances change.
If you are experiencing any difficulties please call in to the school office and we will try to help you.
