Free School Meals
Children may qualify for free school meals if they attend a Nottinghamshire County Council School and the parent/carer receives one of the following benefits:
If your child is entitled to ‘free school meals’ (as we used to call them), in other words if you are a low income family, it is still absolutely crucial that you apply for this. Your child does not have to have a school meal if you prefer them to have a packed lunch but if they are on our Free School Meals register, then they qualify for all sorts of other benefits throughout the year, including free milk, and a £50.00 credit voucher for uniform, trips etc.
When a child is on our Free School Meals register, the school receives extra money which we can then spend on education and enrichment. This extra money is called the Pupil Premium and its purpose is to ensure that children from low income families are not at a financial disadvantage during their education as a result of home circumstances.
