Free School Meals
All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children receive free school meals
Free School Meals - Pupil Premium Children
If your family are in receipt of Income Support, Income Based Jobseekers Allowance or Child Tax Credit, we need you to apply for free school meal. Please apply even if your child does not want the meals; by doing this both you and the school benefit.
The Government gives money to schools to help children from lower income families. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium Grant’ and it is allocated to schools for all children who successfully apply for free schools meals. Last year, thanks to all the families that registered for free school meals, we received £141,920 through the Pupil Premium.
This money has been used in a variety of ways which includes employing additional teachers and support staff, running intervention groups and introducing programmes to help accelerate learning. We might also able to help you with the cost of uniform, swimming, clubs and school trips.
Last year the Pupil Premium Grant is £1,300 per child registered so it is essential that every child entitled to free school meals is on our register. If you think you can help, please fill in the form below and return it to school as soon as possible. Please talk to us if you have any questions about registering.
