Universal Credit

In KS1 (Infant School) the government provides 'Universal Free School Meals'.  If you are on a low income and in receipt of any of the benefits listed below then if UFSM were not available you would have received Free School Meals and can continue to do so in KS2 (Junior School).

This entitles you to support for meals during the Coronavirus Lockdown and the school can claim extra funding to supprot your child during their time at our school.  This is called Pupil Premium.  From this extra funding you will be able to get help with the cost of school trips and some school clubs as well as other support.  It is vitally important thet you let us know if your child is eligible.
