Free school meals for all children in reception, year 1 and 2

All children in reception and years one and two are entitled to free meals as part of the Government’s new Universal Infant Free School Meal. This is worth up to £418 per year per child – please talk to the school office for more details.

Plus if you receive certain benefits or have a household income below the Government threshold register your entitlement with your area education office. Your child’s school can receive extra funding called the ‘Pupil Premium’ which is sometimes worth £1,320 per pupil to the school.

Can I claim free school meals for my older children?

Yes you can if you are on certain benefits. Just ring your local Area Education Office with details of your name, date of birth and National Insurance number and they will let you know if you are eligible.
