Free School Meals
Very important information – children who are entitled to FSM because of their family circumstances bring an additional £1300 into the school budget. Therefore, if your child is entitled to FSM you still need to apply and register your entitlement, otherwise the school will not receive this additional funding. Primary parents could be £380 a year better off when they apply, per child. Why fork out if you don’t need to?
See the FSM page link on our website and the translated leaflets to help explain the benefits of free school meals for parents and schools, and of course pupils. Everyone is a winner!
We are committed to making sure that all children entitled to a free school meal get one.
