It is important for children to have a good nutritious meal at lunch time. If you can’t afford school dinners you may be eligible for free school meals.
To find out if you are eligible visit the Essex County Council website where you can also complete an online application form.
All KS1 children are eligible for a free school meal from September 2014. We will assume all children currently in Reception and Year 1 will have a meal every day unless otherwise advised.
