Free School Meals

COVID Update

Following on from rising Covid rates the Government has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from Covid this winter.

Therefore, with immediate effect, we are requesting that all students (except those with a medical exemption) wear a face mask when travelling on school transport, in communal spaces and when queueing indoors for food.
Please remember to continue to perform a lateral flow test twice weekly.  
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our local communities healthy and safe.

One in five students in England are entitled to a free school meal. On average a family with 2 children spends over £600 per school year on school meals so it’s well worth checking out your entitlement.

Is your child eligible for Free School Meals?

If your application is successful, the school will then be informed.

Even if you don’t want the free school meals we would still encourage you to apply. The more children in school who are entitled to free school meals, the more funding the school will get – this will benefit all Judgemeadow students. for more information you can view this Frequently Asked Questions document.
