Please help us to help you - we are trying to ensure that any family eligible
for free school meals is receiving their entitlement.
By receiving your correct entitlement for free school meals also means that your daughter may benefit from additional funding throughout the year e.g. subsidised school trips, and / or revision classes for exams. The school would like to bring to your attention that there is a new website where parents and carers can quickly and easily check eligibility for free school meals.
The online eligibility check is quick and easy to use. Simply visit www.fsm.lgfl.net and enter the necessary details, which will include a short registration process. This will give you an immediate ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, and will notify the school.
