Free School Meals
You may be entitled to Free School Meals if you are in receipt of Income Support, an Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, an Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance, Child Tax Credit (only if you do NOT receive Working Tax Credit), Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit, National Asylum Support Service.
The Pupil Premium was set up by the government in January 2011. As well as your child receiving a free school meal, it means that school will also receive additional funds for children who are eligible to receive free school meals. Therefore, if you think your child might be entitled to free school meals, it will help the school enormously if you register by completing the application form attached and returning it to the school office along with the required evidence as listed on the form. Please do this even if you do not intend your child to have free school meals.
