Can we help you?

Do you get any of these benefits?


•    Income Support
•    Employment Support Allowance (income related)
•    Income-based Job Seekers allowance
•    Universal Credit
•    support under Part Vi of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
•    Child Tax Credit  or State Pension Credit but not Working Tax Credit (family income £16,190 or less)

 

 

If so, you could have the right to Free School Meals

& the Pupil Premium benefits that go with this!

 

 

What will I get with Free School Meals & Pupil Premium?

 

You’ll get:


•    free school meals (packed or hot)
•    free  school clubs / activities
•    free residential stays / school trips
•    free transport for school activities / trips
•    free music lessons & instrument hire
•    help with learning
•    help with buying School Uniform

 

 

You don’t need to give proof of benefits with your application.  They will automatically check official records (DWP, HMRC & Home Office) & ask you for further information if they need it.


You will then get Free School Meals until you don’t qualify anymore & Pupil Premium benefits for up to 6 years after that.  You are, of course, expected to inform Norfolk County Council of any changes though, & they will check as well.

 

 

How do I apply?

 

You can email the school office at:  office@swantonabbott.norfolk.sch.uk

 

Or you can call the school office on:  01692 538 246

 

You can download the application form from here: Free School Meals Application Form
