Unsure if your child is eligible for free school meals?

Did you know that on average, parents spend up to £500 per year, per child on school meals? There are so many children that are eligible but do not benefit from this crucial funding. Our aim is to make as many families as possible aware of their child’s entitlement to hot, tasty, nutritious meals in school through term time, as well as the great activity opportunities available to them in the holidays.
