School Meals

Universal Free School Meals

imagesAll children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a free school meal (effective from September 2014).

Parents of children who might be entitled to Free School Meals because they are in receipt of qualifying benefits are still strongly encouraged to check eligibility, this is because, even though your child will automatically get a meal it enables the school to access additional funding for the Pupil Premium which is used to provide additional support for  your child.  You will also qualify for assistance with your child’s uniform.

If you are in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Job Seeker’s Allowance or Child Tax Credit, please complete an on-line application form at Dorsetforyou.com or telephone Dorset County Council on  01305 22100 to check eligibility.
