Free School Meals
Schools meals are available free of charge to:
- all infant pupils
- pupils who meet the benefits-related free school meals eligibility criteria (if you receive certain benefits, you may be able to get free school meals - click here for further information)
If you think you may qualify for free school meals, please contact the school office or complete a form online.
School Holiday Arrangements
Kent County Council continue to provide funding for schools to provide supermarket vouchers to families who are eligible for free school meal during the school holidays.
In the week before the term ends, parents or carers of children who are eligible for benefits related free school meals will receive an email from Wonde with a code to exchange for a voucher for one of the following supermarkets:
Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF)
The HAF Programme offers families of children aged 4 to 16, who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals, opportunities to access a range of free activities in the Easter, summer, and Christmas holidays.
Each programme will provide a range of exciting activities, games and new experiences for children, along with a healthy main meal. Vouchers are sent to families who are eligible for free school meals.
To book a place on a HAF programme visit The Education People website.
Free Bus Travel for Low Income Families
Kent County Council have informed us that the local bus companies have been able to put together an offer of free bus travel for low income families this summer break. It is fantastic news, not least because it should help parents access the free Holiday Activity and Food Programmes.
During the week of 17th July 2023, eligible parents/carers will be able to obtain the digital pass via an email in a similar way as the supermarket vouchers are claimed.
If you have any queries or need any help accessing any of the vouchers, please contact the office.
