Free School meals
Did you know that Hertfordshire County Council could save you £300 every year?
If you receive one of the benefits shown below, you could be eligible for free school meals worth over £300 per child per year.
The meals provided are exactly the same as others served in the school and parents can choose the packed lunch option for their child, if they prefer.
The school receives extra funding (Pupil Premium) for pupils receiving free school meals and can use this funding to support the pupils in a variety of ways.
If you would like to discuss this further in confidence, please contact the office for an appointment with Mrs Ellwood.
Children in year 3 or older
Your child can get a free school meal if you receive any of the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (as long as you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and you don’t get more than £16,190 a year)
- Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
- Universal Credit (with annual earned income of no more than £7,400 after tax and not including any benefits you get).
Children who receive a qualifying benefit in their own right are also eligible to receive Free School Meals.
Children entitled to free school meals can also get free milk. Contact the school office for more information.

Children in reception, year 1 and year 2
Your child can get a free lunch at school if they’re in reception class, year 1 or year 2. And if you receive any of the benefits above and register online at the link above, your school could get extra money to help your child.
Children in Nursery
Nursery Children aren’t entitled to free school meals. Nursery children get a free choice of whole milk or semi-skimmed, funded by the NHS.
School milk in reception, year 1 and year 2
Schools provide free milk up until a child’s 5th birthday. (If it’s during the term, they won’t get free milk from that term onwards).
Most children entitled to free school meals can also get free milk, except for children who get Universal Income free school meals. Contact the school office for more information.
