Free School Meals and Other Benefits

All parents are advised to check whether they are entitled to Free School Meals.  

You can do this by completing one of the forms below:

Free School Meals Check Infants (YR, Y1 & Y2)

Free School Meals Check Juniors (Y3, Y4, Y5 & Y6)

All children in KS1 will get a free hot dinner through the Univeral Free Meal programme.  However, you may be missing out on many other benefits.

 

Those eligible for Free School Meal that are registered eligible by the end of each September will be eligible for the following benefits:

FSM Benefits:

1 x £15 voucher for uniform

2 x £5 voucher for educational visit

1 x £30 voucher for residential visit (after deposit paid)

1 x £20 voucher for after-school or holiday care at Link Club

1 x £20 voucher for individual/group music tuition

Some children who are in the Care of the Local Authority or who previously have been in care are entitled to support through the Pupil Premium.  If they are currently in care then this money is provided at the discretion of the Local Authority Virtual Headteacher.

If the child  has left local-authority care because of one of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

the school will provide financial support through pupil premium.  The school will be the final arbitor on what is spent and for these children the following entitlements will normally apply from 1 September 2017:

1 x £15 voucher for uniform

2 x £5 voucher for educational visit

1 x £30 voucher for residential visit (after deposit paid)

1 x £20 voucher for after-school or holiday care at Link Club

1 x £20 voucher for individual/group music tuition

The school may provide alternative expenditure priorities to the same costs on a case by case basis.

If you are not sure what you are entitled to, please come in and speak to one of our office staff.  All information is handled in a sensitive way.
