Please apply NOW if you think you may be eligible for free school meals from September, as this is something which benefits you and the school.
If your claim is successful, the daily cost of a school meal is waived and you do not have to pay. Your child will then be eligible for a free school meal every day. However, your child does not have to take dinner every day if they don’t want to. It is available as often, or as little, as you prefer.
The school benefits through extra funding for every child that is eligible for free school meals. This is extremely important to us in today’s climate of cuts to the Education budget.
We need to make sure we get the maximum funding possible for the school. Even if your child rarely takes school dinner please apply (you don’t have to avail of the dinners).
The link for applications is below - it is all done online. Thank you.
