All Academy’s are given additional funding by the Government for every child who is eligible for free school meals, regardless as to whether the meal is accessed. We wish to obtain the maximum funding available so that we can improve education resources for our young people at St Edmunds.
The Government guidance has changed and even if you are working, you may be entitled to claim free school meals, where previously this was not possible. We also acknowledge that some parents choose not to take up the entitlement to a free school meal.
By applying for free school meals, even if you don’t wish to access a free daily meal, will mean that St Edmund’s will receive further essential, much needed funding.
To check your eligibility we require your date of birth and National Insurance number, so that these can run through the free school meals checking service provided by Wolverhampton City Council. Please can you complete the below form and return to the student service office. If you are found to be eligible you will be notified accordingly.
