Free School Meals

A free school meal is paid for by the government and provided to the student free of charge. If you think your child may be eligible we encourage you to fill out the online application form. is a web site where parents can quickly and easily check eligibility for free school meals and, if eligible, also gain welcome additional funding for their child’s school, known as ‘Pupil Premium’.

What the service does for parents:

After entering essential details into the web site, the online application process links to the Department for Education system for checking eligibility and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify us.

This system is being provided to encourage parents to apply and take advantage of free school meals while at the same time increasing the benefit to schools from Pupil Premium funding, a substantial amount of which does not reach schools because not all parents who are eligible apply for free meals for their child.

Please visit to enter the necessary details. If the outcome of your online application mentions that you are not eligible but you have evidence of your entitlement to FSM please contact our reception.

If you do not have access to the Internet you may either ask our receptionist to support you with your online application or you may use a paper form which can also be downloaded here:
