School meals play a vital role in a student's education - the body and brain need food to work properly - and we are lucky enough to have nutritious (and tasty) meals and snacks provided by Catering Academy.
Free School Meals
There are nearly 63,000 pupils in East Sussex, however only 8,500 children currently get free school meals. Evidence suggests that there are many more, including families living in Peacehaven, who are eligible. We would like to help families whose children could get free school meals to apply for them.
