Free School Meals

Some children are eligible for what is just known as "Free School Meals (FSM)" which for our EYFS and KS1 children is confusing as the school meals are already free. If you are entitled to FSM through means testing this means the school receives additional funding called Pupil Premium Funding.

Your child may be able to get free school meals (pupil premium funding) if you get any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit - if you apply on or after 1 April 2018 your household income must be less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)  

Even if you have not been eligible in the past, if your financial circumstances change, you might become eligible. Once a parent has applied via our online tool, your eligibility is checked every day so you only need to apply once and need take no further action.

Packed Lunches

If you have chosen for your child to enjoy a packed lunch rather than a school dinner, some inspiration for things to include is available on the BBC Good Food website, which you can find here!  As a further source of inspiration, you might like to look at some suggestions by the Nutritionist Resource website, available here.

Dinner Money Costs (for Nursery children, and then Year 3 children and above) - £2.55 per day
