Free School Meals
Calling All Parents!
The following information is for ALL Secondary Schools in North Warwickshire – The Queen Elizabeth Academy, Hartshill School, The Coleshill School, Kingsbury Secondary School, The Polesworth School
- When did you last have your benefit entitlement checked?
- Are you claiming your full benefit entitlement?
- Are you missing out on Free School Meals for your child?
If your child is entitled to a free school meal, the school will also receive extra money (called the Pupil Premium) to provide extra opportunities for the children!
Families do not claim all they are entitled to, and there is more to be claimed – do you want to see if you are getting your full entitlement?
- Warwickshire Welfare Rights Advice Service (WWRAS) are a free and confidential service
- WWRAS will do a ‘benefit check’ to see if you are missing out and will fill in any forms that need to be done!
- WWRAS have helped to identify over £615,000 of unclaimed benefit for families in North Warwickshire and an extra £87,000 for the Borough’s schools – money they didn’t even know they were entitled to!
It’s easy…..just email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 024 7637 2069 with your name, contact details and the name of your child’s secondary school (which must be in North Warwickshire). Contact WWRAS to make a referral by Monday 9th December 2019 and quote ‘SM19’ to be in with a chance to win a new ‘tablet’ for your children. NB: Referrals will be accepted after this date but you will not be entered into the draw for the tablet.
What are you waiting for…….you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
