New Online Application for Free School Meals
We have developed a new online application form for parents to apply for free school meals, and school clothing and school journey grants. We hope that this is more convenient for parents, and it also enables claims to be processed quicker.
We would like to request that schools promote the online application form, rather than the paper application forms. We would also suggest that schools stop using existing paper applications. This will also help us to avoid duplicate paper applications being submitted by Schools and Parents/Carers.
Please note that there is a separate application form on the website for families who have no recourse to public funds.
