Free School Meals - reminder for January Census

We have just finished our termly review of the Free School Meal (FSM) caseload and are reminding schools to ensure that they amend the records of any children that we have informed you no longer qualify.

In preparation for the January school census can we remind schools to ensure that only the children who are listed on your current week’s data on Bradford Schools Online should be recorded as eligible for Free School Meals. If you have children who are receiving FSM but are not on our list we will be happy to double check their entitlement for you. Please let us know if you have any such cases. Alternatively you can check their entitlement by using the Council’s online Free School Meal application form – this form gives you an immediate answer as to whether or not they are eligible.

We usually get a large volume of queries before the census – so we can be sure to deal with your queries before census day of 15 January 2015.  

Can we please ask you to submit your queries to us no later than Wednesday 7 January 2015.

If queries/requests for information are received after this date we will  deal with them as quickly as possible but cannot guarantee they will be completed before the census date.
