Free School Meals

Free School Meals & Pupil Premium Eligibility
The Local Authority have redesigned their online form for families wishing to check their free school meal (FSM) and Pupil Premium eligibility which will enable parents (in most cases) to get an instant result of the outcome of their application.
In the light of recent changes to the benefit system due to the phased roll-out of Universal Credit, families may not necessarily realise that they qualify.
The form is quick and simple to complete.  Once an application has been submitted for a child, if you do not qualify at that point, the Local Authority will continue to check for future entitlement through that child's school life, informing parents if they become eligible.
If you think you may qualify, please do access the form now at
