Please see below useful information regarding Free School Meals. 

Applying for Free School Meal entitlement for Northamptonshire County Council

 

To check if you are eligible for free school meals, please visit:

https://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/children-families-education/schools-and-education/Pages/free-school-meals.aspx

 

❗Please note: Each sibling must have an application for Free School Meals, either on the same application or individually.

 

Once you receive your application reference number and accompanying email, please provide this to the school office by emailing admin@danesholmejunioracademy.org

 

🗓️Free school meals take approximately 7-10 working days to be authorised. Once authorised, Danesholme Junior Academy then receives a notification from Northamptonshire County Council with a start date. This may take longer at present due to the Covid-19 lock down.

 

✔️Danesholme Junior Academy will inform you when your claim has been accepted by Northamptonshire County Council and will inform Kingswood Catering.

 

Kingswood Catering cannot issue your Free School Meal entitlement until they have had notification from Danesholme Junior Academy. 

Any payments made to Kingswood Catering will be backdated and refunded up until your entitlement start date but only once Northamptonshire County Council inform us of your Free School Meal entitlement start date.
