Are you eligible to claim Free School Meals for your child(ren)?
If you have a child attending a school or 6th form and you receive certain benefits, you may be entitled to claim free school meals. Plymouth City Council is able to check your eligibility online, therefore minimising the need to provide proof of your entitlement.
It is of great benefit for your child’s school if you are entitled to free school meals as they receive extra school funding for all children who qualify. Please contact your child’s school for details of their Pupil Premium Policy.
Plymouth City Council have a 5 day turn around for all free school meals applications, and will advise your child’s school of the date the free school meals start.
As someone else is preparing the meals for your child, it saves you having to worry about the effort and expense of making packed lunches everyday. You may also be entitled to further benefits saving you even more money!
To make sure your child does not miss out on their entitlement to eat, please contact:
If you have any queries, please contact the academy, 01752 213939 or email Contactus@marineacademy.org.uk . We hold copies of the application form and we are happy to provide confidential assistance in claiming this benefit.
Details of children who claim Free School meals are kept completely confidential by the Local Authority.
