With continued rising living costs, we endeavour to support our families in need as much as possible. Please take a look at the options below that may help.
Free School Meals
If you are in receipt of Universal Credit, Income Support or Child-Tax Credit, your child may be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). As well as offering free cooked lunches at school, FSM status provides additional benefits such as supermarket and activity vouchers during school holidays and contributions towards energy costs. At school we offer our Breakfast Club at no cost to those with FSM status. We may also assist with costs towards trips and activities if required. If you have previously been deemed not eligible for FSM but your financial circumstances have since changed, it is worth re-checking to see if your child's FSM status has changed.
To see if you are eligible for FSM apply online here, or contact the school office for assistance.
Our school uniform provider, The Schoolwear Centre, offer a savings club, family offers and a uniform bank. Pre-loved, logoed uniform is available to buy on their website.
