Universal Free School Meals Arrangements

Dear Parents

Free School Meals for Key Stage 1


You may be aware from the news and media that with effect from 1 September 2014, all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be entitled to a free hot school meal.

Should you choose to take up this entitlement, your child will receive a hot, nutritious meal each day.  A copy of the menu that will be in operation from September 2014 is available on the letters section of the website (along with a copy of this letter) so you can see the choices available and print off a copy should you wish.


Please note this does not apply to children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6.


Hot meals will continue to be available to children in these year groups; however the price will increase to £2.00 from 28 April. Meals will also still be available for children in these year groups who are entitled to Free School Meals.



When the entitlement comes into force in September , should you choose to take up the offer, you will be required to sign up for a complete term.


More details about signing up for this scheme will follow soon. 




Yours faithfully




J Bathurst
