Warning letters will be sent out for every late after the register closes.
FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Now that all Key Stage 1 children are eligible for free school meals, many parents think there is no need to register for them. But did you know that just registering your child for free school meals means that your school gets extra money
Register now to make sure they don’t miss out!
The Government gives money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called a ‘Pupil Premium’.
For every child registered for Free School Meals, the school receives £1300.
All infant pupils now receive free school meals BUT families who qualify for pupil premium still have to register with the school in order for the school to receive pupil premium funding.
This money is spent on new equipment and resources to make sure children can do their very best at school.
How does it work?
- First, check if you qualify – go to www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/article/22028/Free-School-Meals-and-Free-Milk
- Registering is really quick and easy – go to www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/article/22028/Free-School-Meals-and-Free-Milk
- If you want your child to have a free, healthy meal at lunchtime that’s great – they will get the free meal (saving you more that £350 a year), extra benefits and the school gets £1300 extra.
- If you don’t want your child to have the school meals they can continue as normal – as long as you qualify and are registered, the school still gets £1300 extra.
No one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
