Free School Meals
Did you know....just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money?
Register now to make sure we don't miss out.The Government is giving money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a 'Pupil Premium'.
For every child registered the school gets £1,320 this year.
Do you qualify?
You can register for Free School Meals if you get any of these benefits:
Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods)
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guarantee element of Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
Working Tax Credit run-on – paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
Contact either Kerri or the school office if you think you qualify and we will be able to help you to register.
If you prefer your child to bring in a packed lunch, we would remind all parents/carers that we are a 'Nut Free' and a 'healthy school'. Therefore we ask that children do not bring in any nut products or chocolate bars.
