Parents and carers of pupils already with free school meal funding are receiving their vouchers now!
A Parents & Carers FAQ is available at the bottom of this page which will answer most general queries. If you have any further problems or queries, please get in touch.
Please note, this is not the same as ‘universal’ free school meals which all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive.
All pupils in reception, year 1 and year 2 in state-funded schools are now entitled to free school meals.
It is important that all parents who receive one of the benefits listed above register for free school meals as this will enable your child's school to claim "pupil premium allocation". You will also receive a free £5 voucher towards school uniform if you register.
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment. This additional funding for schools can help to buy new equipment and resources. Please see more information on how Arnbrook uses it's pupil premium funding here or ask to speak to Mrs Stringfellow in school.
