In September, we will need to make some changes the arrangements at lunchtime so that we can keep each ‘bubble’ of children separate as much as possible and also clean between each group.
To prepare for September we need to know NOW whether your child will have a school meal or whether they will bring a packed lunch from home. There will be an option to change this decision towards the end of September.
Please complete the form below by 12 noon on this THURSDAY 16th JUNE.
Please complete a separate form for each child.
ALL children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are able to have a Universal Free School Meal (UIFSM).
You may also be eligible for Free School Meals. If so, please apply via the council website (www.wolverhampton.gov.uk)
These are the Government’s eligibility criteria for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM):
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 (provided you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit) and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190
Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018, your household income must be less than £7,400 a year, equivalent to £616.67 a month (after tax and not including any benefits you get) to qualify for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM)
If you are entitled to Working Tax Credit (apart from during the four-week run-on period), you will not qualify for benefits-related Free School Meals (FSM), regardless of your income. If you are receiving Child Tax Credit only, your annual income must be less than £16,190 to qualify.
IF YOU THINK YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR FSM AND HAVE NOT YET APPLIED – APPLY NOW!
The school receives additional funding based on the number of children receiving FSM in school.
In Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 if you are NOT eligible for FSM, meals are payable via Parent pay at £2.40 (£12 pw)
