Free School Dinners
Free School Meals
Parents can now check entitlement to Free Meals through an online system, which they access through the council website:
They will need an email address and their NI (or NASS) number in order to proceed. The system will check against the Department for Work and Pensions and send details through to the back office. The Benefits team will evaluate the claim and send an emailed response to the parent within three working days.
NB This is the only route by which a claim can be made. Paper applications will no longer be accepted, including Pupil Premium eligibility checks.
