Free School Meals

Your child may be entitled to free school meals or a premium to assist with their education.

If eligible, you are not obliged to accept the free school meals for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding gained would still benefit education provision at the school and help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance.

To find out if your child is entitled please follow the 'Free School Meals' link.

The basic information is also reproduced below;

Pupil Premium is a Government grant which is paid to schools / academies.  It is allocated for children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals or to children who have been looked after continuously (in Local Authority care) for more than six months.  This grant was introduced in April 2011 and information is taken from a Data Collection from all school’s called the School Census.

Entitled families that register for Free School Meals (even if the meals are not eaten) means that extra funds are allocated to the school to provide valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities to eligible students.

If you are in receipt of any of the benefits listed below, you may be able to apply for Free School Meals:-

  • Income Support
  • Income-based jobseekers Allowance
  • Support from NASS (National Asylum Support Service) under part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of state Pension Credit
  • Child tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190
