Update from the Executive Headteacher 23/8/20
I have added an important letter onto the Parents - Coronavirus tab. This relates to the arrangements for returning to school in September (keep your phone landscape to ensure you can see the menu clearly).
I hope that you are all having a lovely holiday.
Best wishes

Applying For Free School Meals
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the financial situation for many families has changed and we have seen a steady growth in the number of pupils eligible for free school meals. At Littleham C of E, we were quick to act regarding FSM for our families and provided our existing FSM families with hampers on a weekly basis.

The government recently announced that they will provide vouchers per pupil for families in receipt of free school meals to help with the costs of food over the summer holidays. Many families are unaware that they are entitled to this support so below we outline the various reasons why you might be able to apply for this.

Children qualify for free school meals if you get one of the following benefits:
• Universal Credit and your household income after tax is less than £7,400 per year (not including any benefits you get)
• Child Tax Credit, as long as you are not getting 
• Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of less than £16,190
• income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Income Support
• Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
• The guarantee part of Pension Credit
• Asylum seeker support
• Children aged between 16 and 18 who are getting Universal Credit in their own name can also get free school meals
It is easy to find out if you qualify, click the link below and complete a simple form.
You will be notified instantly if you are eligible. The process is fairly straight forward, as you just need to provide your name, child’s name, school name and importantly your NATIONAL INSURNACE NUMBER. If you are eligible, please screen shot or send that confirmation to us at admin.littleham.devon.sch.uk and you will then be able to claim these vouchers for the summer holidays and beyond. Of course the free school meals team will also notify us but not as instant as you notifying us.
