Southwark’s policy is to provide meals free of charge to all Southwark primary pupils. We do not take any payments from parents for school meals. However, we do still need to know which parents are entitled to claim benefits as this is directly linked to the pupil premium funding allocation to schools. This funding can be used to support parents and pupils in a range of educational means including support towards paying for trips etc. It is therefore essential that school is kept informed in order for us to keep accurate records on this. If you are not sure or would like further information please speak to the school office.
