Free school meals and extra pupil premium funds for schools

Please read if you have a child in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2:

It's important to fill in this application, as even though your child is getting a free school meal under the new government scheme, by applying, you could raise an extra £1,300 for your child's school from central government, to fund valuable support like teaching assistants, after school clubs and school trips.
