Mid-December Updates 

Free School Meals 

Every primary school aged child attending school in Newham still has the opportunity to have a free school lunch even if their parents/carers are not in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits for free school meals.

Reasons to apply - free after school clubs and discounted trips

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals they will no longer pay for their after school clubs with us and any residential trips are offered at a discounted rate.

Extra funding for your child’s school too!

Whether your child is at primary school and receiving a free meal, has packed lunch or you are currently working, we request that the parents/carers of all primary and secondary aged children in Newham should still register for free school meals, even if you don’t think you are currently eligible. Once we have the application, if at any time a family is in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits for free school meals we will automatically update our records and their school will receive additional funding known as Ever6 Pupil Premium. This is up to £1,320 depending on the child’s age!
