Free School Meals
Did you know the government gives additional funding to schools for those children entitled to free school meals?
Schools use this money to obtain additional staff and resources that help improve the quality of education.
To find out whether your child qualifies for free school meals, and hence whether their school would receive additional funding, please fill in the details requested on this site.
From 1 April 2018 the Department for Education have made changes to the Universal Credit Thresholds, any pupil eligible for Free school meals before this date will be protected until 31 March 2022.
We have made a couple of enhancements to the website, for further information please see the FAQ 's, the enhancements are:
- An LGfL or TRUSTnet school can check eligibility on behalf of a parent, the parent will need to contact your child's school, as they can run a check on your behalf.
- A parent of a child attending any LGfL or TRUSTnet school can now use this website to check their eligibility.
- A Certificate of Eligibility is available through our website for any child eligible for a free school meal that is attending a school in England. The Certificate of Eligibility should be taken to your child's school.
