If you receive benefits it really helps our school budget if you claim free school meals even if your child already receives them. Our office staff are very knowledgeable in this area and can help you fill out the relevant forms so please just ask if you require help. Here is the link to the website and the revised application form:
Free school meals are available from all maintained schools and academies in West Sussex if you receive any of these benefits:
If you are eligible for benefits-related free school meals in accordance with the above criteria and your child is also receiving Universal Infant Free School Meals, please continue to register. This will enable us to claim valuable 'pupil premium' funding.
If you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals, you can get an application form from the school office. Parents eligible to claim include those in receipt of Income Support, Income-based Jobseekers Allowance, Income-based Employment and Support allowance or Child Tax credit with an assessed income below £16,190. Please speak to a member of the Office Team for help and assistance.
