Free School Meals

Are you entitled to Free School Meals? 

A significant number of our students already claim their entitlement and use it every day however, we know that so many more families are entitled to claim and do not. 

At CNS we recognise that there are often many reasons as to why families do not claim for their entitlement. Some parents may fear being stigmatised for doing so, others may feel that the process of claiming is too difficult. 

As an Academy we are committed to ensuring that all of our students are receiving the support they need to make their learning journey with us a successful one, whether this is through pastoral support or by providing them with a nutritionally balanced meal at lunchtimes. 

If you feel that you may be entitled to Free School Meals or you would like further advice on how to claim or to check your eligibility we would encourage you to get in touch with us for a confidential discussion; we are happy to help with all of your queries. 

Claiming is quick and easy and could mean that you gain over £400 a year in free lunches. As an Academy we could gain over £900 to spend on making your child’s education better, meaning that Free School Meals really do benefit everyone.
