Free School Meals
Free school meals are available to some families who are in receipt of certain government benefits, such as Income Support or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance. Other benefits may qualify you to apply for Free School Meals for your child. Applying for a free school meal could raise extra funding for the school to fund valuable teaching and learning support, and is still paid to the school even if your circumstances or entitlement ceases.
If your child does qualify we recieve additional funding known as the Pupil Premium Grant. This grant will then apply to your child for 6 years. The funding is used to support your child educationally and can, in some instances, be used to pay for educational visits and extra curricular activities.
