    Increase in School Meal Price from September and Income Based Free School Meal Information

    2 July 2020 (by Sandra Bedford (Bursarmarton))

    Dear Parents and Carers
    Due to an increase in the cost to school from Cheshire East Council, the price for a school dinner will increase to £2.30 from September 2020.  This will be reflected on ParentPay when you log in to pay for meals for September onwards.
    We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to apply for income based free school meals if you think you may be able to claim.  All children who are entitled will generate extra funding for school which we will use to support them, please find the information from Cheshire East below or follow this link to find out more and apply
    Kind Regards

    Income related free school meals (IRFSM)

    You can claim free school meals for each child who attends school in Cheshire East if you receive one of these benefits:

    • Universal Credit with no earned income or with net monthly earnings less than £616.67
    • Income Support
    • Income based Jobseeker's Allowance
    • Income related Employment Support Allowance
    • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
    • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
    • Child Tax Credit  - as long as you have a yearly household income of less than £16,190 (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) and do not get Working Tax Credit
    • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

    We suggest you do make a claim for free school meals even if your child is in key stage 1 as the school can claim additional funding (pupil premium) for new equipment and resources.

    Phone 0300 123 5012 for further information and help.
