Dear Parents/Carers

As you are probably aware, pupils from Reception to Year 2 are eligible to receive Universal Free School Meals and we’re delighted that so many of our children enjoy these daily.  However, our academy receives additional funding for every child who would be eligible for a free school meal if Universal Free School meals were not available and, as you can imagine, this funding would make a significant difference to the opportunities we can offer to the children. 

Therefore, we are asking EVERY parent/carer of EVERY child at our academy to complete a claim (even if you feel sure that you do not qualify)

We are now have access to an on-line checking system to make this process even more convenient and would ask that EVERY parent/carer (with Parental Responsibility for a child) completes the on-line form by clicking on the following link

The on-line form is very easy to find your way around but below is a summary


New Application - please press “start” to make a new claim for Free School Meals

Please read the eligibility information and then click “Yes Continue” (even if you feel that you may not qualify)


Please complete the form fully


Please complete the form fully


Please check the details carefully and tick the appropriate box before clicking “submit”

You will then receive a notification confirming if your child is eligible or not.

NO further action will be required by Parents/Carers and your child’s records will be updated

If you are unable to complete the on-line document, please send a Class Dojo to the office requesting a paper form and this will be sent home with your child. Once completed, this should be immediately returned to the office for inputting on your behalf.

May I take this opportunity of thanking you for your continued support during these financially challenging times
