Free School Meals

Please note: that the Free School Meal (FSM) delivery service to the addresses of eligible children due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) ended on 3 April 2020.

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, schools will continue to support children who are eligible for free school meals (based on DfE conditions) and are currently at home. The DfE are providing these families with a national voucher scheme that can be used at several supermarkets. Please contact your school, in the first instance, to arrange the issue of these vouchers for your family.

If you make an application for Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Support, the application form you complete allows you to also apply for free school meals or the Pupil Premium at the same time.

If you do not claim either Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support, or wish to make a separate claim for Free School Meals or the Pupil Premium, you will need to complete a separate application form.
