Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
- 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 guaranteed element of Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit run-on
- Universal Credit
You may also be aware, that pupils who are registered for free school meals enable our school to receive additional money to support them in the form of the Pupil Premium funding. Here at Hardwicke, we use this funding to support your child in various ways such as additional adult support, funded educational experiences, and new equipment.
Should you have any queries regarding the application, or Pupil Premium Funding, please email the school office email@example.com.
Perhaps you have not been eligible for any of the above benefits, but are facing financial hardship, please contact (fully confidentially) firstname.lastname@example.org Becky Smith is our Family Support Advisor and she will be able to give you some advice and contacts for further support. At Hardwicke, we have also been an approved Food Bank Voucher Issuer for a few years now, and if you feel that you would benefit from a Food Bank Voucher, please contact Rebekah Smith.
