Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (ie they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.
Children under the compulsory school age who are in full time education may also be able to get free school meals.
If you think your child is entitled to free school meals, you'll usually need to fill in an application form you can get from your local council. Give your completed application to the school office and make sure you can show documentary proof of any support you get.
