School budget cuts

by | Dec 19, 2019

You may have seen in the media that schools are facing further budget cuts. HPS is no exception.
Here’s how you can help HPS get more funding for pupil resources at no cost to you!

Register your child for 1. Free School Meals

You may be eligible to claim free school meals for your child if you claim the following benefits:
• Income Support
• Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance
• Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
• Child Tax Credit (but not entitled to Working Tax Credit and whose annual income does not exceed £16.190)
• Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
• Universal Credit (provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400)
• Guarantee element of State Pension

2. If your child prefers packed lunch, it is worth registering as well.

This could mean your child receives a discounted place on school trips, reduced cost of clubs and one free item of uniform!
