As you may be aware, commencing in September 2023, all children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 living in Greater London will be offered Free School Meals. This important step extends the existing Free School Meal provision – currently available to children in reception, and years 1 and 2 – to all primary school children in Greater London.
Your child may be entitled to free school meals. Even if your child does not wish to eat free school meals, but is entitled to them, it's worth applying because for each child entitled to free school meals the Academy could receive funding to help with tuition, resources, coaching and extra assistance. Find out if your child is entitled to free school meals by accessing the ‘Eligibility Checker’ Once you have confirmation that your child is eligible for free school meals, please register for FSM using this link, The meal value is £2.24.
