The Trustees of Prosper Learning Trust (PLT) have been providing all of our pupils with the opportunity to receive a nil charge school meal during the school week. This has meant that for those pupils who do not currently receive free school meals, they received a nil charge lunch, paid for by the Trust, up to the value of a school meal each day they were in school.

The Trustees have decided that this nil charge initiative will continue for the remainder of this academic year and the Summer Term – up to and including Friday 19th July 2024.

We still encourage all families who may be entitled to free school meals for their children to continue to claim these during this period, because as well as being a benefit to the pupils it also ensures that our schools receive the additional income from the Government to help provide support and resources. If you believe you may be entitled and do not yet receive free school meals, please contact your child’s school for further information and support or you can apply using the following link:
