Free School Meals
If your child is currently in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 you do not have to pay for your child’s school meal as you qualify for the Universal Free School Meals.
How to apply for Free School Meals
Your child will receive their free school meals automatically, but it’s vitally important that you still complete your school registration form in case your child is eligible for extra funding for the school from the Government, worth £1,300 per year. That’s extra money to spend on enrichment activities, teacher development, and targeted support for the children that need it most. You may also be entitled to other benefits like food vouchers during the holidays. There is more information about registration here: https://education.hackney.gov.uk/ In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
After you have completed your application you will receive an email to confirm your eligibility, you can then bring this into the school office as proof of your entitlement. Hackney Education will also send out a notification to us here at school confirming your child’s FSM and Pupil Premium eligibility.
