As a parent or carer you may not be aware that your child could be entitled to free school meals. If eligible, a meal up to the value of £2.25 per day can be obtained free from the school canteen at lunchtime. Dormers Wells High School is a Healthy School so school meals are a good way of ensuring that your child eats well at lunch time. By claiming free school meals you also save yourself time and money.
In addition to the benefits for you and your child, claiming free school meals will also benefit the whole school. The funding that the school receives is partly dependent on the number of students who have claimed free school meals so applying can help enable us to provide further resources in school to help your child. The more eligible parents who claim free school meals for their child, the more funding the school receives. Even if your child does not wish to take up their free school meal every day the school will still benefit from the increased funding.
Your child is eligible for free school meals if you receive any of the following:
- Income support
- Income related employment and support allowance
- Job seekers allowance (income based), child tax credit or pension credit with child tax credit and have an annual income of less than £16,190 (and not in receipt of working tax credit)
- You are assisted by the national asylum support service (NASS).
Please note: parents who receive job seekers allowance or employment and support allowance which is contribution based, working tax credit or other benefits are not eligible for free school meals.
