PUPIL PREMIUM! Claim Free School Meals and help Redlands
For every child that is entitled to free school meals, Redlands receives a "Pupil Premium" of £600 this year!
In the past twelve months we have used Pupil Premium to: pay for counselling and support for children who need it;
pay for additional teachers to do small group work and one to one tutoring; subsidise school trips and residentials;
provide free places at TJs Breakfast Club.
To check if you are entitled go to http://www3.hants.gov.uk/caterers/hc3s-freeschoolmeals
If you simply want a form you can ask to see Mr Harcombe who will deal with your request in private away from the busy main office.
When teachers call dinner register no one knows who is free and who pays - there should be no shame in claiming your entitlement and, remember, you are not just helping your child to a delicious and nutritious school lunch but you are helping the school too!
Even if you don't actually eat the school meals (you can still bring packed lunch) the school gains £600 because you are entitled.
