Your child will be eligible for free school meals if you (or your partner) are in receipt of any of the following:
Once eligible, your child will continue to receive free school meals in primary or secondary school until at least 31 March 2022 and then until the end of their current phase of education, i.e. primary (Year 6) or secondary (Year 11). After this period, you may need to reapply.

It is therefore important that you claim free school meals and the pupil premium even if your child does not wish to take a school meal or your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and already receives an infant free school meal.
If your child is attending one of the following schools you need to contact the school directly to apply for free school meals:
Please contact us if you have a change in your circumstances, for example your child changes school or you or your partner stop receiving any of qualifying awards listed above.
