Is your child entitled to extra support with their learning?
You can get extra funding for your child if you or your partner is in receipt of benefits.
Benefits include: Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit, Child Tax Credit and have an annual income of £16,190 .
Registering for free school meals and pupil premium could raise an extra £1,320 for your child's school to fund valuable support like:
· After school activities
· Breakfast Club
· School visits
· Support with uniform and PE kit
· Support with their learning
This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receiving eligible benefits. It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals/pupil premium as this involves more than a free school lunch and your child's school will receive extra funding to ensure your child gets support.
