We are following the government guidelines regarding supermarket vouchers for children who are entitled to income-related free school meals for days they are not in school. The School will contact those families directly.
Higham Primary School intends to help children develop healthy eating habits and ensure that they get the energy and nutrition they need across the whole school day. It is just as important to cook food that looks good and tastes delicious; to talk to children about what is on offer and recommend dishes; to reduce queuing and to serve the food in a pleasant environment where they can eat with their friends.
All children in reception, year 1 and year 2 automatically get free school meals. However, if you receive any of the benefits below, you still need to register for a free school meal for an infant child.
