We are asking you to complete the form too, so the school receives more funding.

Please complete the form by clicking here for each of your children.

L​ook at the potential benefits:

  • A free school meal for your child, which is good for their health and could help their learning.

  • Savings for you, worth over £400 a year.

  • Extra money for the school through Pupil Premium, worth at least £900 a year.

  • Support with vouchers during the holidays

Remember, just registering your child for Free School Meals means that St John Bosco Arts College receives the extra money even if you don't take up the free meal. Only you will know you have registered, and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
