Free School Meals
Could your child be entitled to Free School Meals?
If you are claiming the following benefits you may be able to apply for FSM;
- Income Support
- Income-based Job Seekers Allowance
- Child Tax Credit
- National Asylum Seekers Support
- Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
- Employment and Support Allowance
(Unfortunately you cannot claim FSM if you are claiming Working Tax Credit.)
It's easy to apply at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/freeschoolmeals or by telephoning the Free School Meals team on 01629 536481.
Even if you would prefer your child to have sandwiches instead of a school dinner, it is important that you apply. The school receives a pupil premium for every child eligible for FSM so you would be supporting the school's finances.
