Free school meals (FSM) are a means-tested benefit which provides a child or young person with meals at school for free. When eligible for FSM, children benefit from a healthy nutritious meal and families could save more than £400 per year for each child. In addition, the school will also receive a payment called Pupil Premium. This payment is used by the school to fund valuable extra support for the children. Further details about how Pupil Premium payments are used by the school to support children can be found further down this page.
