Free School Meals information
Corby Technical School appreciates that some parents do not apply for Free School Meals (FSM) but now, more than ever, it can clearly be seen to have educational advantages for individual students for a number of years through their school career. FSM eligibility is more than a meal at lunchtime and the benefits for those students eligible are now much more, spanning a period of at least six years from the initial allowance.
We would encourage all parents who may be eligible for FSM to pursue this support avenue. It could help children considerably whilst they are at school and give them access to many more opportunities. If you are unsure as to the benefits, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
How to register for free school meals?
Registering is really quick and easy – if you think you might be eligible, you can telephone (01604) 366656, or text ‘FSM’ followed by your full name, National Insurance Number, your child’s name and school name to 60622. For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (01604) 366656. There is also further information via Northamptonshire County Council, click here to view.
If you want your child to have a free, healthy meal at lunchtime that’s great – they will get the free meal (saving you more that £350 a year) plus extra benefits and the school get extra funding.
If you don’t want your child to have the school meals they can continue as normal – as long as you qualify and are registered, the school still gets funding.
