Free School Meals Eligibility Check
Free School Meals Eligibility Test
Dear Parent / Carer,
Free school meals and the Pupil Premium
‘Free School Meals / Pupil Premium Service’ www.fsm.lgfl.net is a web site where parents can quickly and easily check eligibility for free school meals and, if eligible, also gain welcome additional funding for their child’s school, known as ‘Pupil Premium’. If eligible, you are not obliged to accept the free school meals for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding gained would still benefit education provision at the school.
What the service does for parents:
After entering essential details into the web site, the online application process links to the Department for Education system for checking eligibility and gives an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify the school.
This system is being provided to encourage parents to apply and take advantage of free school meals while at the same time increasing the benefit to schools from Pupil Premium funding, a substantial amount of which does not reach schools because not all parents who are eligible apply for free meals for their child.
Please visit www.fsm.lgfl.net and enter the necessary details and support this worthwhile initiative
