All children in EYFS and KS1 are entitled to free school meals, but they have to be applied for in KS2.
However, if you fit the criteria below, we can also access additional funding for school, regardless of your child's age. If you fit the following criteria, please contact the school office for a form or ask at the office for information.
All applications are confidential and we are happy to help with the process in any way we can.
To be entitled you must be in receipt of one of the following:
· Child Tax Credit but DO NOT receive Working Tax Credit and your income is less than 16,190 pounds. (Please note anyone receiving Working Tax Credit, regardless of income, does not qualify)
· Income Support
· Income-based Job Seekers Allowance
· Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
· The Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
· Asylum Seeker
Even if your child would still like to bring their own sandwiches to school, please get in touch with the school office as being on free meals has added benefits regarding other funding available to the school, which will enhance your child’s learning.
