Free School Meals

All children in Reception and Years 1 & 2 receive free school meals at present. This is known as Universal Free School Meals and is Government funded, you do not need to apply for this. 

However if you would be entitled to Income Based Free School Meals at the present time regardless of the year your child is in (even Reception and Years 1 & 2) you should let us know because:

1. Your child will be eligible for a number of other benefits 

2. The school will receive additional funding 

What is more your child will remain eligible for pupil benefits until they finish the phase of schooling they are in.

It is quick and easy to check your eligibility or apply online using the link below. The parents & carers eligibility checker takes just a moment and if you email or print your eligibility we are very happy to help you from there, or you can ask us to do it for you. Please let the school know if you have applied directly to Royal Greenwich as we can make sure your application has been processed.
