The DFE have permanently extended free school meal eligibility to children in all households with no recourse to public funds (NRPF), subject to maximum income thresholds.
What this means is that you'll be entitled to apply for pupil premium - so your child is then entitled to school milk after they turn 5, for instance. It also means that they'll be able to have free school meals when they move on to junior school. All of our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children get free school meals anyway at King Richards, but that changes when they move on. It's well worth doing, there isn't any catch and it might really help you!
If you have no recourse to public funds, please contact the school office.
