Information regarding Free School Meals

Parents charged council tax

Parents who are charged council tax at their address who wish to claim FSM should make a claim using the online standard application form online form.

This is so that both their council tax support and FSM application can be processed at the same time. Also claiming council tax support allows us access to the same systems we used when checking for Housing Benefit claims, resulting in speedier decisions on their application for FSM.

Parents not charged council tax

Those parents who are not charged council tax and are only claiming for FSM (for example parents who are not the lead tenant at the address or parents who live outside of Leeds but whose children attend a Leeds school) should send the FSM only application form, a copy of which is attached.

Parents can hand their FSM claim forms into any One Stop Centre or send them to the following address:

School Milk

Dear Parent/Carer

School Milk Is Available For ALL Children

If your child is currently under 5, we’re delighted to confirm that we have arranged for them to receive free milk at school, funded by the UK Government’s Nursery Milk Scheme.

When your child turns 5 or if they are already over 5, you have the option to pay for their milk. We have made arrangements with the UK’s leading school milk supplier, Fresh Pastures, to supply milk at a subsidised cost of just 0.20 per day.

What you need to do:

 Visit www.freshpastures.com as soon as possible and select “Register your child for milk here”, then follow the on-screen instructions to register and pay

  • OR
  • Ask the school office for a registration form – send your completed form to Fresh pastures, and they will send you a payment request.
  • If your child is over 5 and entitled to benefit-based free school meals, school shall be funding their milk

If you need any further assistance or queries, please contact us on 0845 3402100 or admin@schoolmilkuk.co.uk

A portion of fresh, chilled milk at mid-morning break provides protein, calcium and other vital nutrients, important for your child’s growth and development. It’s also a great way to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch, re-hydrating your child and helping them to concentrate in class.

 

Kind regards

The Head Teacher
