Child’s Name ……………………………………………..


My child will be having the Government funded school dinners   
My child will be having packed lunches     
My child is entitled to free school dinners/pupil premium [see below]     


Part of our school funding is now determined by the number of children receiving free school meals/pupil premium.  Therefore it is really vital that you claim if you are entitled to this in order to ensure the school is funded appropriately. 

We will use some of this funding to pay for your child’s educational visits etc and provide extra enrichment activities to support their learning.

How to apply

Please see the attached information giving details of how to apply. Your free school meals will continue as long as you receive a qualifying benefit. You do not need to reapply each year – just tell us if your child changes school.

When to apply

Free school meals cannot be backdated, so you should apply as soon as your child needs free meals and you become eligible.

Please ask the school office staff if you need more information about or help with applying for free school meals.
