School Meals

School Meals - Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

You will be aware that the Deputy Prime Minister has recently made an
announcement that from September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1
and Year 2 in First, Primary and Special Schools and Academies will be
eligible for a free meal irrespective of parental income. As yet we have no details about how
this will operate, but as soon as further details become available we will inform you.

In preparation for this new Government initiative, Northumberland County Council will provide
the additional funding necessary to see every child of infant age benefit from two free school
meals, irrespective of parental income, during week commencing 11th November 2013 only.

Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will gain two lunch credits in order to benefit from the
two free school meals. Year 3 and 4 children are not eligible for the two free meals offered.
