Free School Meals (FSM)
Important Update for all Parents
As meals are free under the Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM), fewer parents are registering their entitlement to Free School Meals (FSM). This is resulting in the school is missing out on essential income. Every primary aged child registered as eligible for free school meals attracts £1,320.
If you are on a low income or benefits PLEASE register for Free School Meals – even if your child is getting a free meal under UIFSM. The form from Herefordshire LA can be downloaded at Free School Meals application form.pdf or collected from School Reception.
