Free School Meals

Free School Meals (FSM) and Pupil Premium (PP)

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals you also have access to help with costs of school trips and other school-related expenditure; the money received by the school from the Pupil Premium grant supports personalised education for your child. We would encourage all parents/carers to apply if they are in any doubt.

We write to parents/carers of prospective pupils in the Summer Term before they start at Bexley Grammar School. We explain that those families entitled to Free School Meals can check their eligibility  online (

Pupils in receipt of Free School Meals cannot be identified by other pupils because all students use our biometric (cashless) system to pay for school meals in the canteen.

The process is simple and quick as long as you put 'Welling' as the town in the 'Find Schools' box in the application. You will be asked for your National Insurance number as part of the process.

If you are eligible you must complete a Free School Meal Application Form which needs to be sent to  the Free School Meals Team (address on the form).
