Is there really no such thing as a free lunch?
For many young people in Peacehaven there could be…
Did you know that your child could be entitled to a free school lunch if your family get any of the following support?
• Income Support
• Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
• An income-related employment and support allowance
• Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
They are healthy - School dinners aren’t all semolina and turkey twizzlers, our onsite catering team freshly prepare a range of tasty and healthy meals and snacks every day. Research suggests that a healthy lunch can increase children’s concentration.
It will save you money – If you have 3 children and spend £2 a day on lunchbox ingredients for each of them that adds up to nearly £1000 per year. Just imagine what else you could spend that money on!
It will save you time - If you spend 15 minutes a day preparing a packed lunch for your child you will have spent nearly two whole days making packed lunches by the end of the school year!
You will be helping your child’s school – For every child who receives free school meals the government gives extra money to the school to help us provide all children at PCS the best possible education.
