FREE SCHOOL MEALS
Lordswood Academies Trust has introduced a new system for checking eligibility for Free School Meals online. If you receive any of the following benefits then you may be eligible for Free School Meals:
As part of the application you will be required to provide your National Insurance number and confirm that you are in receipt of one of the benefits listed above. You will also need to provide your name, address and date of birth. On completion each applicant will be issued with a unique reference number. Please note, a separate application is required for each child.
The system provides the highest level of data security and will comply with all appropriate regulations and codes of practice.
Please note, parents of children who have sandwiches, by registering for Free School Meals, schools receive additional funding known as the Pupil Premium, which is £900 per pupil. Even if you do not wish to have a school meal it is important that you complete an application if you are on any of the above listed benefits. Please take the time to complete an application as this funding really does make a difference to school budgets.
If you have any questions regarding these changes please contact the school office.
The National School Breakfast Programme
Our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.
As a NSBP School we are pleased to offer a healthy school breakfast, available to all, and enjoy the benefits that brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day.
