Free School Meals

If you think your family may be entitled to Free School Meals, you can apply online by clicking here


This is the quickest and easiest way to check your eligibility.  North Yorkshire Council will inform us directly if you are entitled, so you don't need to do anything.


Alternatively, you can complete a paper form at the school office and this will be sent to North Yorkshire Council on your behalf.  This takes a while longer.
