Free School Meals
If you feel you may be entitled to claim, please do so, even if your child/children will bring a packed lunch to school. Registering your claim allows our school to apply for additional funding. This money will be used to support your child’s learning in the school environment and help them to reach their full potential by allowing us to fund extra tuition and additional teaching staff.
In order for you to be able to claim FSM and for us to claim this additional funding, we are asking you to provide us with your Name, Date of Birth and National Insurance Number (or asylum seeker reference). It is important to note that no other parents or pupils will know you have been assessed and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming. All data received will be held in the strictest confidence and only forwarded to the LA for the purpose of assessing school funding.
