Free School Meals update

Posted on: Tuesday 9 March 2021

On Monday March 15, all primary school year groups and some secondary year groups will return to face-to-face learning.

All primary children entitled to free school meals will be provided with school dinners from next week.

Discussions are continuing around canteen provisions in secondary schools from next week. In the meantime, payments for secondary school pupils who qualify for free school meals will continue.

Schools will be contacting parents and carers to set out catering arrangements, but primary school children who qualify for free school dinners will be provided with a meal in school.

It means direct payments for primary school children will end following the payment this week, however, the payments will resume during the two-week Easter holidays.
