Free School Meals

Secondary children may choose from a range of healthy food and drink items which are individually priced. Secondary children who qualify for free school meals can spend up to £1.80 per meal. School meals are subsidised by the Council and the above charges are amongst the lowest in the country.

How do I apply?

After filling in the form you can post it to Welfare Benefits or send it into school and we will process it for you.
Unless you are applying on the basis of Child Tax Credit you do not need to send any documentary evidence of income with your form. We will make the necessary checks on your behalf. If you are applying on the basis of Child Tax Credit you need to submit a copy of your latest Tax Credit Award Notice with form EWB1.
