Universal Free School Meals
From September 2014 every child in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be entitled by law to be offered a free school meal. There will not be an option for the school to provide sandwiches, so if you do not wish your child to have a hot meal, you may opt to bring in a packed lunch from home. Please note that you must opt for either packed lunches or school dinners. For administrative reasons your child cannot switch between the two during the week. Should you wish to change please give the office a week's notice in writing. A sample menu is available from the office if you wish to see it.
Should you wish to access further information regarding school meals in Surrey, this is available on: www.myschoollunch.co.uk/surrey
Free School Meals
If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, please complete the application form below - it needs only to be completed once for this school. Another form will only need to be completed if circumstances change i.e. if your surname or if your child/(ren)’s parent/carer changes. Additional siblings joining the school can be added to the original signed form. However, you are still responsible for informing the school immediately if you stop receiving qualifying benefits that would entitle your children to receive a Free School Meal.
To make sure that Surrey County Council and Government Data Protection guidelines are adhered to, you must sign the form giving permission for the school to use the personal details provided to verify the claim, so you no longer need to provide proof of eligibility.
