Parental information

A new criteria has been added to the Free School Meals eligibility from 1st April 2018.

  • Universal Credit – if you apply on or after 1st April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get).

Following this addition, it has been brought to our attention that some students, incorrectly, appear to no longer be eligible for Free School Meals. We would advise that you check your eligibility and, if necessary, re-apply on line. If you have any questions, please contact the Academy on 0121 464 4428 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
