Free school meals for all 'infants' at school
From September 2014, all children at school in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 get free school meals.
But parents who get a qualifying benefit or credit still need to claim free school meals for their 'infant' from us so that their child is counted for the pupil premium for your school. Make sure they have filled in our form or claimed as part of their Housing Benefit/Council Tax Support claim so that the child's name will be on the list we send you.
If you are an Asylum seeker we can arrange a free school meal. We can accept one of these documents as evidence:
- an IS96 document
- a standard acknowledgement letter (SAL) 1 or 2
- a letter from the Home Office
- a letter from a solicitor
- an application registration card (ARC)
