Free School Meals
This academic year, children from Reception to Year 6 qualify for the Universal Free School Meal. This is a London-only initiative. This means that you do not need to pay for your child’s school meal.
How to apply for Pupil Premium
Your child will receive their free school meals automatically, but it’s vitally important that you still complete your school registration form in case your child is eligible for extra funding for the school from the Government, worth £1,300 per year. That’s extra money to spend on enrichment activities, teacher development, and targeted support for the children that need it most. You may also be entitled to other benefits like food vouchers during the holidays. Click the link below to find out more. Only families who qualify for free school meals will be entitled to the holiday vouchers and therefore it is essential that you apply for this funding.
After you have completed your application you will receive an email to confirm your eligibility, you can then bring this into the school office as proof of your entitlement. Hackney Education will also send out a notification to us here at school confirming your child’s Pupil Premium eligibility.
