Funding Fears Over Free School Meals
5:20pm 15th October 2014
It is feared Cornish schools could lose out on funding because of those free meals.
Headteachers are worried families actually entitled to them will not bother signing up because all infants get them now regardless.
They say that would hit funding because they get extra cash for places for children who need more help.
Pirate FM has been for lunch with Karen Brokenshire who is the headteacher at Treloweth in Redruth: "It funds a variety of activities, it also includes additional teacher time, so we can give specialist support to children who need that, extra teaching assistants and it really can make a difference.
"It's impacted on all our pupils in a positive way so we really do urge parents if they are entitled to free school meals to sign and take up their entitlement which in turn will impact on the children in our school."
