If you are eligible for Free School Meals, we encourage you to make the claim for the following reasons:

  • It provides your child with a hot meal of their choice each day in school at no cost to yourself – this can save you on the cost of a meal or packed lunches.

  • It also enables us to request extra funding for students here at Hall Park Academy.
