If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals then you can apply online www.n-somerset.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals. The new online system allows parents to have an instant result. Schools are able to ask parents for their details and apply on their behalf if required, so if you have any problems applying please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Children may also bring a packed lunch but not hot/fizzy drinks or glass containers. We ask that parents do not include nut products in packed lunches as we have children in school with nut allergies.
Milk/drinksChildren will receive free milk, a third pint carton up to their fifth birthday. Children over the age of 5 can continue to receive milk in one of two ways: If they are entitled to free school meals (not universal free school meals) milk can be provide free of charge throughout their time at school. Please contact the school office if your child is entitled to free school meals and would like to receive milk. If children are not free school meal eligible, an opportunity to continue receiving milk beyond their fifth birthday is available at a cost. Please arrange this with the school office.
