Free School Meals

Pupil Premium is an additional grant to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals.  This grant allows us to employ additional teachers, teaching assistants and resources to ensure that all our pupils make fantastic progress and leave Middleton with the skills they need to do well at secondary school.


We are asking all our parents to apply for free school meals if they think their children might be eligible.  Our new, cooked on site, meals are very popular but the children do not have to have school lunches if they would rather not.  The important thing is that everybody who is entitled to free school meals is registered.


Free school meals are available to families who are in receipt of at least one of the following benefits:-


  • Income support
  • Employment and Support Allowance – income related only
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance (NOT Contribution Based JSA)
  • Child Tax Credit only (with a combined family income of less than £16,190 per annum as assessed by HM Revenues and Customs) as at April 2017.  Anyone receiving Working Tax Credit, regardless of Income, will not qualify for free school meals.
  • National Asylum Seekers Support
  • Guaranteed Element of Pension Tax Credit


The process of application and our school arrangements are entirely confidential.  Our office staff will be happy to help with the application process or you can call the Milton Keynes Council Free School Meals Team on 01908 253338.


All children at Middleton Primary School who are eligible for free school meals will also receive a free school sweatshirt or cardigan and 2 free school polo shirts.


If you have any questions regarding free school meals please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the office staff.
