Free School Meals Increase

We have been informed that Sheffield City Council have confirmed that Free School Meals Allowance will increase to £2.54 per child per day with effect from this September 2023. This means that a child who is eligible for this is allowed to spend up to that value in school for a school lunch at lunchtime.

Its not "just" about free lunch!

School receives additional money for children in receipt of Free School Meals. This is called Pupil Premium funding.

This funding allows us to provide additional resources in school to support the progress of your child.
