New Way To Apply For Free School Meals
1 February 2019
If you have a child attending Stoke Damerel Community College and you receive certain benefits, you may be entitled to claim free school meals.
Plymouth City Council is able to check your eligibility online, therefore minimising the need to provide proof of your entitlement.
It is of great benefit for your child’s school if you are entitled to free school meals as they receive extra school funding for all children who qualify - you can read here how we use that money, which is called Pupil Premium funding,here.
Plymouth City Council has a five-day turn around for all free school meals applications, and will advise us of the date the free school meals start.
