Free School Meals

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

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals (s)he will be able to have a meal each day in the canteen at no cost to you, up to £3. Students 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.

In addition to free 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.

1. To check whether your child is eligible for Free School Meals, please click the following link:             Free School Meals Eligibility Check

2. This check will provide a 'certificate of eligibility' but you must complete the process by completing an online application. Residents of Bexley borough can click this link: Bexley - Free School Meals Application, for other boroughs please make your online application via your Local Authority website.

3. Please forward your 'certificate of eligibility' along with the email confirmation from your local authority to our Finance/Business Manager: Mr Walsh ( who will ensure your child is added to our system as receiving Free School Meals.

Please note that we are unaware of a successful application for Free School Meals until we are informed by parents/carers.
