Are you entitled to Free School Meals?

13 July 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

Re: pupil premium and free school meals

If your child is eligible for ‘free school meals’ and you register them for this, we’ll receive extra funding called ‘pupil premium’. We use this extra money to improve the educational provision and resources at the school.

What is pupil premium funding?
Pupil premium funding from the government is given to schools to help pupils reach their full potential, regardless of their background or financial situation. It’s provided for pupils who:
• Are registered for free school meals
• Have been registered for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
• Are, or have been, in care
• Have parents in the armed forces
At Leytonstone School, we get an extra £935 for every eligible pupil who is registered for free school meals. This extra money could make a real difference to the quality of education we offer.
For example, we’ve previously used pupil premium funding for:

• Educational provision/resources
• Academic interventions
• Wellbeing and self-esteem building interventions

Is my child eligible for free school meals?
Your child might be eligible if you access:
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance
• Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
• The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
• Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
• Working Tax Credit run-on
• Universal Credit, provided you have an annual net earned income not exceeding £7,400 (£616.67 per month)

Does my child have to eat the free school meals?
No. Pupils who are registered for free school meals don’t have to eat them. If you’re eligible but you want your child to have packed lunches you should still register because the school will receive the funding which can support your child in other ways.

How do I register?
You only need to register once.

Yours faithfully,

Fardeen Challenge

30 May 2018

Dear parents and friends of Leytonstone School.

We’ve joined together to raise money for charity in memory of the most inspirational and brave person we know.  Fardeen Khan sadly lost his battle to cancer in April this year. He had fought hard and been an amazing student of the Leytonstone School Community. He will be so sadly missed which is why this year Leytonstone School have created the Fardeen Challenge in his memory. Staff and Students,both past and present, will be doing the Nightrider London bike ride to raise money to celebrate Fardeen’s Legacy to help as many young people that we can and donate money to the Teenage Cancer Trust.  He always had a smile on his face and brightened every room he entered. You’ll see our team fundraising target on the right. Your donation can really help us smash this goal
