Free School Meals

Free School Meals (FSM)

A delicious cooked meal is available should your child be eligible for FSM. Once the school receive confirmation from NCC, SchoolGrid will be informed and the school will advise you of a start date.


How does FSM work?

1. First, check if you qualify – Free School Meals are offered to children whose parents receive one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income related Employment & Support Allowance
  • Income related Jobseekers Allowance
  • Support under part V of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit; provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income that does not exceed £16,190


2. Registering is really quick and easy – if you think you qualify, you can telephone (01604) 366656, apply on-line at or text ‘FSM’ followed by your full name, National Insurance Number, your child’s name and school name to 60622. For further information please email 


3. If you would like your child to have a free, healthy meal at lunchtime that’s great - they will get the free meal (saving you more than £437.00 a year!)


4. If you don’t want your child to have the school meals - they can continue with a packed lunch as normal - as long as you qualify and are registered, the school will also receive a Pupil Premium (currently £1,300.00 per child.) This money is in addition to our main school budget and can be used to support your child in various ways.
