Dear Parent / Guardians
Many of you will be aware that as a school we benefit financially from every child who is registered for free school meals. The reason for this is that for every child registered to receive a free school meal we receive Pupil Premium funding.
This funding enables us to purchase additional resources to ensure we provide the very best education we can for all of our children. Since the implementation of the Universal Free School Meal initiative (which provides a free meal for every child in Reception and Key Stage One), many parents are not aware that they should still apply for free school meals for their child in order for Plantation to receive their child’s pupil premium funding.
In order to help parents to apply quickly and easily, we have arranged for the school to be able to do this on your behalf. To help us to begin our checking exercise, we would be grateful if parents / carers could complete this form as soon as possible even if your child already receives free school meals.
Alternatively, you can email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
. If you choose to email, please ensure you include the following statement within your email ‘I give permission for Plantation Primary School to confirm my child’s free school meal eligibility online’ along with the details requested on the slip attached to this letter.
If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me either by telephone or by email.
Mrs. Debbie Walsh
School Business Manager
