Did you know that if you are eligible for free school meals but have not yet applied then doing so could not only save you up to £400 a year but could also generate an extra £935 in funding for St. Julie’s?

You can apply for free school meals if you are in receipt of one of the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit – your household earned annual income must be less than £7,400 after tax and not including any benefits
  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment Support Allowance
  • Support under part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed part of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit – with no Working Tax Credit and your annual household income is no more than £16,190, as assessed by the Inland Revenue

If your application is successful then once we have received notification a daily credit is automatically applied to your child’s account in the catering system, and they continue to use the Dining Room in exactly the same way they do now. Please see the document attachment for more information.

As we start to move towards exam season, Young Minds have launched advice for parents about supporting their children.

Tips include:

  • Encourage your child to take revision breaks and find a balance between studying and doing things they find enjoyable and relaxing.
  • Make sure they are eating and drinking at regular intervals.
  • Reassure them – reinforce that you are and will be proud of them no matter what happens.
  • Remain positive and hopeful!
  • Let them know their feelings are valid and normal, but also offer support and solutions where possible.
  • Anxiety is often worst at night and this means it is useful to encourage good bedtime routine

Later this week, students in Year 8 will be invited to make an initial expression of interest in options subjects. This is simply to help us gauge interest and make robust plans to support the process and does not represent the final choices of any student.

Students will be asked to complete this form, indicating five choices, in order of preference, that they are interested in studying. Students will express their final preferences later in the year.
