Free School Meals

Applying for Free School Meals

School meals are free for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children – why do I still need to apply?

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals, but if you receive one of the benefits from the list below you may also get help with:

The cost of residential visits (speak to your school about this)
Subsidised school trips
Free school uniform
Free Milk

You may be eligible for free school meals if you are in receipt of one of the following:

Income Support
Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit
the ‘Guaranteed’ element of the State Pension Credit
support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 (you will need to apply directly to the school not Bradford Council)
Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
Universal Credit

For each child registered for free school meals, schools receive a pupil premium of £1,300 (Primary schools) or £935 (Secondary schools) per year. This money is to help your child achieve their best at school.

If you think you are eligible for free school meals please visit https://www.bradford.gov.uk/benefits/applying-for-benefits/free-school-meals/ for further information and to apply on-line. Alternatively, please call into the school office where we will be happy to help with the application process.
