Free School Meals
Is your child eligible for free school meals?
The rising cost of living means everyone could use a bit of help. If you are unemployed or on benefits then you may be able to claim free school meals for your child.
This would not only help you: it would help the school too.
Schools are given additional funding by the Government for every child who gets free school meals. We want to obtain as much as possible so that we can improve education for all pupils.
We are aware there are children who attend The Windmills Junior School who are entitled to free school meals but do not realise it. The pupil premium means that even if you don't wish to access a free daily hot school meal it is worth you applying if you can as the school is awarded additional money for your child’s education that will be spent directly on their learning if they qualify for free school meals.
If you think your family could qualify you will need to apply on line via the West Sussex County Council website: https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/education-children-and-families/schools-and-colleges/free-school-meals/#is-my-child-eligible
