Free School Meals

Introduction

Apply for Free School Meals & register for Pupil Premium

Please complete the form to apply for Free School Meals (FSM) and to register for the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG - additional funding for the school to help support your child more effectively), even if you are not sure of your eligibility. You will not need to provide any additional proof of income as your details and eligibility are checked. Please apply online where possible by following the link below.

You will be given an immediate answer if you apply online; however, please note that a positive response online is only an INDICATION of eligibility for free school meals - no award exists until processed and confirmed. Provided you are eligible you will not need to do anything else.

Please also apply if your child/children receive Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM - Reception and Years 1 & 2).

We will get the PPG for each child (additional funding).
