The Government determines part of a school’s funding based on the number of KS1 children who have a dinner on census day. This is coming up next week on Thursday, 3rd October. It is important that we have as many children as possible having their free school meal on this day. We will only receive the full amount of funding if this is the case. As you are aware school budgets are tight so we need to claim all the money that could be ours.
