Did you know you can save £350 per year and The Burgess Hill Academy will receive extra funding if you register your child for Free School Meals?
No one will know you have registered and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
You can register your child for Free School Meals if you receive any of these benefits:
School meals are healthy- Our onsite catering team at Café Oakmeeds freshly prepare a range of tasty and healthy meals and snacks every day. Research suggests that a healthy lunch can increase children’s concentration.
It will save you money – If you have 3 children and spend £2 a day on lunchbox ingredients for each of them that adds up to nearly £1000 per year.
It will save you time - If you spend 15 minutes a day preparing a packed lunch for your child you will have spent nearly two whole days making packed lunches by the end of the school year!
You will be helping your child’s school – For every child who receives free school meals the government gives extra money to the school to help raise achievement for children from lower income families. This funding is called ‘Pupil Premium’. With this money we could support trips, enrichment activities, equipment and provide extra help for children.
Simply click here to download the form and return to The Burgess Hill Academy Reception or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are eligible, credit will be automatically added to your child’s cashless catering account at the start of each school day. They will then be able to use it to buy a sandwich, salad, pasta pot or a hot meal at lunch time. The choice is theirs!
Fill in the form today and you’ll be helping your child concentrate, be providing extra funding to the school and saving yourself time and money.
