Free School Meals
Students who are eligible for free school meals have the daily amount credited to their school account before break time each day. In this way they can use their student card in the dining room and servery to purchase their food at break and /or lunch time.
Students cannot be identified as being in receipt of free school meals. Students should purchase a school meal or equivalent and will not be allowed to purchase confectionary using funds that are allocated for their meal.
Please note that the daily funding for the free school meal cannot be carried over the to next day. Student accounts are credited for the start of each school day.
