Free School Meals
Am I entitled? If you are receiving certain benefits, your child may be entitled to a free, nutritious school meal.
Did you know… Free School Meals entitlement is now linked to Pupil Premium Funding and for 6th form students to Bursary qualification. Students transferring from primary to secondary school may need to re-apply in year 7 for their entitlement to continue.
Please telephone our school office for an application form (01245 266766) or complete an on-line application form via the parents area of our school website (www.hylands-tkat.org).
Successful applicants can receive a daily allowance which is immediately available to the student.
Evidence of current benefit entitlement and household income is required, and will be verified at least annually.
When your child started at Hylands you would have received a letter which provided you with a username and password for ‘ParentPay’, if you no longer have this letter or require your password to be reset please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents who do not have access to make payments online can request the school office to order them a ‘PayPoint’ card to enable them to top up lunch money at their local shop. If you feel that you may need to use this service please contact the school office, the cost of each card is £1.50 plus VAT.
If you are not able to make payments online you are welcome to come into the main reception where a computer will be available for parents to use to access ‘ParentPay’.
