FREE SCHOOL MEALS

During this time we realise that some families may be suffering financial difficulties. If your employment circumstances have changed in the past few months and you are now in receipt of certain benefits you may be entitled to claim for Free School Meals.  If you follow this link you will find a letter explaining the funding that schools receive for children entitled to Free School Meals. Please be assured that there is no stigma attached to Free School Meals and your eligibility will remain confidential.
If you wish to check whether you are able to claim Free School Meals please log onto the Kirklees Council website by following this link

https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/schools/free-school-meals.aspx#

If you do qualify Kirklees will inform us and we will add your child to our Free School Meals list.

Please note that children in Reception and Years 1 & 2 currently receive Universal Free School Meals – this is a different scheme to Free School Meals which is only available to families in receipt of certain benefits and who meet the Free School Meals criteria.
In the meantime, please contact Alex Sykes in the office if you have any queries by emailing alex.sykes@holmfirthjinschool.net
