Extra funding for families and schools

Extra funding for families and schools

FAMILIES on qualifying benefits are reminded to check if their child or children could receive a free school meal.

Families could save up to £450 per year per child and their school could get extra government funding, known as the Pupil Premium, to boost their education.

It is easy to find out if you qualify for free school meals. Complete the confidential checker at dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/free-school-meals or telephone 01305 221090.

More information about the extra funding available can be found on the Dorset Council website.
