Registering could raise money for Shirley School

We ask all parents/carers to sign up for school meals as registering could also raise extra money for Shirley School from central government. This is known as Pupil Premium and is used to fund valuable support like extra tuition, teaching assistants, additional lunchtime activities or after school clubs (full details of how we spend Pupil Premium can be found here).

Even if you don’t want your child to receive a school meal, we ask that you register so that we can identify if you are eligible for Free School Meals. If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, we will then send off the form on your behalf and the school will receive the Pupil Premium.


Free School Meals
If you would like to find out more about Free School Meals, including how to work out if your child/ren are eligible and how to apply, please refer to the documents below.  Remember, if your child has been receiving Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) and is moving into Year 3 you must apply to continue to receive free meals.  More information is included below. 

How the information in this form will be used

The information you provide in this form will be used by the school to claim extra grant money which is called Pupil Premium. If eligible, the school will send your form to Cambridgeshire County Council.

The information will also be used by the school to assess the charges for school trips and after school clubs.

It is really important that you complete all the information asked for in this form to help make sure Shirley Primary School is as well funded as possible.


School Meals currently cost £2.35 per day - £11.75 per week.
