Don’t miss out on free school clothing grants

Parents of children starting school in September are being urged to remember to apply for free school meals, even though since last year all children in reception and years 1 and 2 have been automatically entitled.
This is because if eligible parents do not apply, they miss out on a free school clothing grant provided by the county council worth £25 (or £35 for secondary pupils) and their child’s school misses out on a £1,300 Pupil Premium payment from government; these payments allow schools to provide extra support to pupils to help them achieve their potential.
