School Meals & Healthy Eating

Are you registered for receiving Free School Meals?

You can apply for Free School Meals (FSM) via the KCC website.

(Either online or by downloading the forms) or of course you can still do so via the traditional method and pop into the school office.

If your child is receiving a school meal because they are in Reception Class or KS1 - it's still important that you apply if you are entitled. It ensures that the school is given the appropriate additional funding to support your child.

Even if you decide that you do not want your child to take up their free school meal, but are still entitled it is important to register as it ensures the school is allocated the correct funding in all areas of their school life.

If you have any questions or need help with the process please contact the school who will be happy to help.
