Free School Meals and School Menu


From September 2014 all children who are in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 in a state-funded school will be entitled a free healthy school lunch. These meals will be freshly prepared in our school kitchen on every school day.

Children in other school years will also be offered a free school lunch if their parent is receiving certain benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, as long as you do not get a Working Tax Credit  and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenues & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • If you are supported under Part IV of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after your employment finishes.

Please click here to link to the relevant form for completion on the Suffolk County Council website, or, if you would prefer, call into the school office for a paper copy.

You only need to complete this form once (unless your circumstances change) and it will last for the duration of your child’s time at their current school.

Registering could raise money for your child’s school

Whatever year group your child is in, registering for free meals could raise an extra £1,300 for your child’s school. This money is used to fund valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff, after school activities and help with payment for trips etc.

This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving one of the welfare benefits listed in the form. It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, so that your child’s school receives as much funding as possible.
