Meeting with Kate Mason from KEVICC School

I met with Principal, Kate Mason to discuss the ongoing difficulty faced by Devon Schools in the F40 group. Devon schools are 4th from the bottom in the amount they receive per pupil, which leaves a significant gap in funding. Schools can access further support for pupils who qualify for free school meals, but many of those who might be eligible may not inform the school for a number of reasons. With KEVICC's new cashless system your children's privacy is guaranteed. Even if children do not wish to have a free meal, it is really important to register their eligibilty as there are often other benefits such as help with school trips.




Anyone in receipt of the following can register:-

  • Income Support (IS)
  • Employment Support Allowance (Income Related)
  • Child Tax Credits without Working Tax Credit with an annual taxable income (as assessed by HMRC) of less than £16,190.
  • Income based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA)
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Please follow this link to register for Free School Meals

For an application form or to make a general enquiry to Devon County Council about Free School Meals telephone 0845 155 1015 or email edmail@devon.gov.uk
