FREE SCHOOL MEALS
If you believe your child is eligible for Free School Meals we encourage you to apply for it, even if they do not have school dinners every day. A part of the school funding is decided based on the number of FSM pupils we have and your child may benefit from additional benefits, such as financial support towards residential trips to Nant BH, or towards Flintshire Music lessons, such as learning the guitar, violin etc.
Flintshire County Council have today informed us that with effect from week beginning 01.05.17, the Housing Benefits Section, County Hall, Mold will be dealing with all Free School Meal applications and relevant changes to eligibility to Free School Meals.
If you believe you are entitled, or already receive this benefit, the system has now changed to using an online application form to make your claim. They will no longer be issuing the paper application form.
The electronic application form is on the Flintshire CC website in two places within the Resident area; Schools/School Meals and Council Tax & Housing Benefit/Benefit Forms (see links below). Also, if you type ‘FSM’ in the search box (top right) that will take you directly to the form.
