Free School Meals

Did you know by registering your child for Free School Meals, the academy receives extra funding from the government?

How does it work?

  1. First check if you qualify and register by clicking this link. Tina Carter, our office administrator, will be able to help you if you contact her. (ext 2174).
  2. If you want your child to have a free healthy meal at lunchtime, that’s great – they will get the free meal (saving you £390 a year).
  3. If you don’t want your child to have the school meal they can continue as normal – as long as you qualify and are registered the Academy still gets £900 extra.

You can register your child for a Free School Meal if you get any of these benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided that are both entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
