Free School Meals
The local council offer every child in a Newham primary school (including infants and juniors) a free school lunch everyday. Newham is one of only three local authorities in the country to provide a universally free school meal scheme to junior schools, and currently over 15,500 pupils (2017/18) are benefiting from a free school meal who would not have otherwise qualified for a subsided or free meal. This offer is delivered and funded by the Mayor of Newham as part of the Major's Promise.
Even though primary schools offer a free school lunch every day, if you apply for a free school meal - and we agree your application - you can raise £1,300 for your child’s school. This extra money comes from the Government, and in the next school year the amount goes up to £1,320 per child.
