Free School Meals

At Monteagle we  are working hard to help and support all of our families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)

We have arranged for each family to receive a TESCO top up card.  All eligible families should have received their cards by Friday 26th March, but please let us know by e-mail  (office@monteagle.bardaglea.org.uk) if you have not received yours.

Please keep the card safe, as we will continue to upload the card during term time with £15.00 per week for each child.

You will receive a £15.00 top up payment on the 2nd April.  On Monday 20th April each  card will be topped up with a two weekly payment of £30.00. A payment of £30.00 per card will then continue to be made every two weeks on a Monday.


Please note this scheme does not cover Universal Free School Meals that are given to Reception, Year One and Year Two  children.

If you think your child is entitled to FSM but are unsure how to apply please contact our Parent Support Advisor Nicky on 07956 458202.  Please also contact Nicky if you are not entitled to free school meals,  but are finding it difficult to manage at the moment.We can help you access support – at for example Dagenham Food Bank or Barking Food Bank.
