Free School Meals & Pupil Premium

Your child might be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:

·        Income Support

·         income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

·         income-related Employment and Support Allowance

·         support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

·         the guaranteed 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 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

·         Universal Credit

Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.

Pupil Premium
If your child is eligible for Free School Meals or has been eligible at anytime in the past 6 years the school may be entitled to Pupil Premium funding for them.

The school has freedom to use these funds in the best way possible to reduce barriers to learning and increase opportunities for Pupils Premium children. The money can, and is, used in part for school-wide initiatives if we believe these will greatly benefit our Pupil Premium children too.

We also use the funds to target interventions, such as reading recovery, occupational therapy, Teaching Assistant or Learning Support Assistant costs on a 1 to 1 basis or as part of a small group and for some children this will also mean targeted additional tuition.  School uniform concessions have also been given where we have felt this has been beneficial, in addition to music tuition and residential trip concessions.

If you feel you might be eligible or you are uncertain about your eligibility, please complete the short questionnaire below and we will check this on your behalf. If you are not eligible the cost of lunch will be £2.00 per day, this will rise to £2.05 in January 2018
