Free School Meals
Free School Meals With many families facing financial hardship as the cost of living increases, we are doing all that we can to ensure that every family that is eligible to claim Free School Meals (FSM) for their child is benefiting from this additional help. With this in mind we have made it easier for parents to apply for a free school meal. Our new application process means that all applications are now made electronically. In just a few simple steps and a matter of minutes parents will receive an instant decision on whether their application has been successful. The new application process is now live and can be accessed immediately via the link of the school website/parent/school meals tab.  
PLEASE NOTE: All children in Rec, Y1 & Y2 are eligible for UNIVERSAL free school meals. However, applying using this form will enable you/ your child to access ADDITIONAL financial support.
