For the academic year 2023-24 Universal Free School Meals have been extended for all children from Reception to Year 6. 


Universal Free School Meals For All Reception, Year 1 And Year 2 Children


The government has ensured that from September 2014 all pupils in Reception, year 1 and Year 2 will receive a free school meal at lunchtime. Every child in these classes is entitled to the free school meal and will be provided with one at Greenwood Primary School.
