Universal Free School Meals
In September 2014, the Government introduced universal free school meals for all Key Stage 1 children (Reception, Year1 and Year2). This gives an automatic entitlement of a free school meal to every child within these year groups. However we would like to encourage all parents (including those with children in Key Stage 1) to check if they are entitled to claim for Free School Meals outside of this scheme.
A few years ago the Government introduced Pupil Premium funding which is given to schools for each child registered for free school meals, children in care and services children (see pupil premium details). All eligible parents (including those with children in Key Stage 1) need to register their entitlement for this funding to reach our school.
If you feel you may qualify, please follow the link below. Here you will be able to check your eligibility and if you are eligible, the process will continue for you to register.
If you are eligible you will be entitled to financial help towards some school trips and one of our school uniform vouchers (value £50) to be used to purchase uniform items through the school. So even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and therefore has free school meals through the UFSM process, it's worth checking your eligibility and registering.
