Free School Meals/ Pupil Premium


Free School Meals / Pupil Premium Grant

Dear Parents/Carers,

If your child is eligible for free school meals, it's worth registering them even if they're not going to have the school lunch, or if they are now provided with a school lunch following the introduction of universal infant free school meals. This is because schools receive a 'pupil premium' - an extra payment for each eligible child which enables us to provide support and services which directly benefit pupils.

Children may qualify for free school meals if their parent/carer receives one of the following benefits:

 Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400

 Income Support

 Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (JSA)

 Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

 Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

 The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit

 Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after the person stops  

     qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

 Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no

     more than £16,190

Apply online or call 0300 500 80 80.

If you wish to speak with us in more detail about this, please do not hesitate to contact the office who will be able to help.
