Tasty, nutritious school meals have been provided in the Bradford district for many years.
The Universal Infant Free School Meals scheme means these meals are now provided FREE to all primary school children in reception class and years 1 & 2.
There are no forms to fill in, or other eligibility criteria. So if your child is in one of these year groups, you can simply send them along to school to enjoy a delicious free lunch each
day. If you would be eligible for free school meals (see criteria below), it’s a good idea to still register as your school will benefit from extra funding.
Please note: For children in years 3-6, meals will be priced at £1.70, which is still great value for money.
- All main meals are accompanied with either potatoes, rice or naan bread, seasonal vegetables or salad, and fresh bread.
- All meat is from farms which satisfy UK welfare standards.
- All fresh vegetables and potatoes are locally sourced, wherever possible.
