Free School Meals

Free School Meals

We, as a school are very well aware of the current financial difficulties some of you may be facing as a result of the recent economic downturn and wish to assure you that we constantly seek ways to keep costs to a minimum.

In addition we aim to support any family experiencing difficulties, which we can do in several ways; one being to remind you that your family may qualify for Free School Meals.
